Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal To Write Book

BobbyJindal.jpgLouisiana Governor Bobby Jindal announced that he will write a book for Regnery Publishing, home to authors like House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Ann Coulter. It is scheduled for a 2010 release.

According to NOLA.com, the book will be co-written by Peter Schweizer, who helped former Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger write a novel. Some see the book as a sign that Jindal may be pondering a Presidential bid.

Here’s more from the article: “‘One of the reasons I’m doing this with a co-author is to make sure there’s somebody else doing a lot of the heavy lifting,’ Jindal said, adding that he expects that most of his work on the book will be in the evenings and on weekends.” (Via Sarahw and JasonPinter)
