BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Gov. Bobby Jindal is heading to Iowa to tout Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
Jindal spokesman Kyle Plotkin said the Louisiana governor will travel to Iowa on Thursday for the Romney campaign events.
The appearances are certain to continue speculation that Jindal is a contender to be Romney's pick for a running mate.
Jindal will be one of several Romney surrogates on the campaign trail this week while the former Massachusetts governor is traveling through England, Israel and Poland.
