The presidential campaign continues to build as we approach the two main parties' nominating conventions. Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal will attend a weekend retreat in Utah, hosted by GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney. Does this mean he's a potential choice for Romney's running mate?
Not exactly, says University of Louisiana political science professor Joshua Stockley. Many other Republican heavy-hitters will be at this retreat, too.
"It doesn't mean this is the short list, but some sort of list of potential nominees," Stockley explained. "It may not be a VP nominee, but there might be something there that they want Jindal to help out with."
Jindal's ability to raise money from conservative voters would likely be an asset to the more moderate Romney.
"I think this indicates that Jindal potentially is going to be playing some role in Romney's campaign," Stockley said. "There are a number of ways to examine this."
Stockley said a cabinet secretary post could also be in the offing, if Romney wins in November.
