In Louisiana governor's race, Jindal likely to win second term

(CNN) - Louisiana voters take to the polls Saturday in the state's gubernatorial primary, an election Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal is widely expected to win.

The state holds a nonpartisan blanket primary, meaning both political parties run in the same contest and if a candidate wins 50% or more of the vote, then he or she wins the race.

    Jindal is doing a GREAT job and is the model of competence. If you want well run, efficient government, put a Republican in office. If you want bloated, wastefull union controlled bankrupt government, vote Democrat. The choice is clear.

    From what I've read his motivation to help his state is inspired. This makes up for his inexperienced approach following their last great disaster. New Orleans and Louisiana are fun places and they've got a decent Governor.
