Potential Presidential Candidate Touts Success as a Leader, Vision for the Country at TNGOP Event

MEMPHIS, Tenn.—The Tennessee Republican Party today welcomed Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal to the Bluff City for the TNGOP Leadership Series Event. The Governor comes to the Volunteer State riding a wave of conservative enthusiasm after an impressive performance at last month’s Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington.

Tonight’s event features special guest Congressman Stephen Fincher and the Shelby County Republican Party is serving as an honorary host for the Leadership Series event.

Jindal is a potential Republican presidential candidate known for his intellectual prowess and commitment to conservative principles.

TNGOP Chairman Chris Devaney remarked, “We’re proud to welcome a reformer in chief of the caliber of Governor Jindal to Tennessee. As the 2016 election approaches, Americans are looking for a leader who has a track record of enacting conservative reforms and will lead based on Republican principles. Gov. Jindal certainly fits that mold and we’re anxious to hear what he has to say at tonight’s Leadership Series event.”

Gov. Jindal stated, “Thank you Chairman Devaney and the Tennessee Republican Party for having me here today. I’ve been to Tennessee several times, and it’s always great to come to a state that has been a true success story for conservative reform. Tonight, I’ll talk about preserving the American Dream and how Conservative leadership can pave the way forward for our nation and return us to a path of prosperity and security.”

Devaney added, “Tennessee is going to play an important role in determining the next Republican nominee and, I suspect, Gov. Jindal will figure prominently in that discussion.”
