Jindal camp: Gov. not running for Senate

A source close to Governor Jindal says he's not running for U.S. Senate against Mary Landrieu next year.

A piece this week by LAPolitics.com publisher John Maginnis titled "Why Jindal Needs To Run Against Landrieu" has led to a lot of political buzz, but UL political science professor Joshua Stockley believes, in this case, no means no.

"I really think this is much ado about nothing," he said.

The Maginnis article makes a good case for Mr. Jindal entering the 2014 Senate race.

However, Curt Anderson, a Jindal advisor, reportedly told National Journal there is "no interest at all." 

Stockley feels, for now, that should be the end of the discussion, "I think we should get off the subject and move on.... Maybe John Maginnis' article is some wishful thinking."

Announced Landrieu challengers at this point are Baton Rouge Congressman Bill Cassidy and St. Tammany Parish farmer Ron Maness.
