BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Gov. Bobby Jindal has backed a
Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in Kansas - but he's refused to make endorsements in a list of federal races in Louisiana so far.
Jindal's office issued a statement saying he was supporting GOP
Congressman Jerry Moran in the Kansas Senate race. Jindal called
Moran an advocate for taxpayers and fiscally responsible.
Though the primaries are done and the list of Republican
candidates is one to a race, Jindal hasn't issued any endorsements
in Louisiana's elections, including the U.S. Senate race where
Republican incumbent David Vitter faces Democrat Charlie Melancon
in the Nov. 2 election.
Jindal's spokesman, Kyle Plotkin, ignored repeated questions
Monday about why the governor has chosen to endorse a candidate
elsewhere but won't offer recommendations to voters in his home
