Bobby Jindal leading contender for Louisiana governor

June 27, 2003 19:17 IST

If the outcome of a pre-poll survey is any indication, Bobby Jindal is all set to become the next governor of Louisiana state.

Jindal, a candidate for the Republican nomination, is making rapid strides and his supporters are confident he will make it to the post.

With 100 days left for the election, a poll conducted on June 18-19 by Garin-Hart-Yang Research, shows Jindal has climbed to the No 1 position among gubernatorial candidates and is the only Republican to appear among the top five candidates in the race in a state where the Democrats are well entrenched.

He also has a 2-to-1 lead over any other Republican.
