(CNN) - Make it seven potential GOP White House contenders who will speak at this spring's key gathering of conservatives.
Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana will address the Conservative Political Action Conference next month, the event's sponsor announced Friday.
"Governor Bobby Jindal represents a new generation of governors leading the conservative movement," said Al Cardenas, president of the American Conservative Union. "We look forward to welcoming Governor Jindal back to the CPAC stage and hearing about the many conservative solutions he introduced in Louisiana."
Jinda's a two-term governor and previously served in the U.S. House. He has a national profile as chairman of the Republican Governors Association and will be 45 on Election Day 2016.
Other Republicans who are thought to be considering presidential bids and are on the speaking list include Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida; Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky; Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, who was last year's GOP vice presidential nominee; former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania, who as a 2012 Republican presidential candidate battled Romney deep into the primary calendar; former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush; and Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin.
Mitt Romney, the GOP's 2012 presidential nominee, will also be speaking at the conference.
CPAC, which touts itself as the largest annual gathering of conservative leaders and activists, turns 40 this year and will be held March 14-16 at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in Maryland near Washington, D.C.
