Report: Jindal will not seek Senate seat? But could change mind

MONROE, La. (LAPolitics.com & Louisianadaily.com) - A source close to Governor Jindal said he's not running for U.S. Senate against Mary Landrieu next year.

A piece this week by "LAPolitics.com" publisher John Magginis titled "Why Jindal Needs To Run Against Landrieu" has many talking, but ULM political science professor Joshua Stockley believes no means no.

The Maginnis article makes a good case for Mr. Jindal entering the 2014 Senate race. However, a Curt Anderson, a Jindal advisor, reportedly told National Journal there is "No Interest. At All."  Professor Stockley feels, for now, that should be the end of the discussion.

Stockley said perhaps it's "wishful thinking" for a more dynamic Republican than Congressman Bill Cassidy to challenge Landrieu. He said she's very popular even with some Republicans and will be hard to beat. Stockley says expressing no interest in a Senate run now doesn't mean Jindal cannot change his mind.
