Jindal makes robo-call for Perry in SC

 

COLUMBIA, S.C. -- While Rick Perry makes an all-out sprint in Iowa, he’s keeping a hand in South Carolina by releasing a robo-call featuring Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, who is campaigning for Perry in the Hawkeye State.

In the call, acquired from sources within the Perry campaign, Jindal says Perry’s campaign is “finishing strong in Iowa,“ adding that Perry is a “consistent conservative who will completely overhaul Washington” and who “is not afraid to tell the truth about the danger our country is in.”

“South Carolina can make sure that we have a conservative nominee. I believe Rick Perry is the strong conservative we need,” Jindal continues on the 23-second robo call.

Jindal, a fellow southern governor with a high national profile, hit the trail with Perry in Iowa last week, at one point correcting the Texas governor about details in his tax plan.
