(CNN) - For many Americans, Friday's ringing in of the weekend brings two days off from work.
But that's definitely not the case over the next three weekends for Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana.

Jindal, who's considering a bid for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, pays a visit Friday to South Carolina, which holds the first southern primary in the race for the White House.
As first reported by CNN's Peter Hamby back in early April, Jindal will headline the South Carolina Republican Party's Silver Elephant Dinner. The gathering is one of the state party's top fundraising events.
While in the Palmetto State, a source close to Jindal tells CNN the governor will also stop by a fundraiser for state Attorney General Alan Wilson, who's up for re-election this year. He'll also meet with South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, a fellow Republican and a close friend of Jindal's. And he'll speak with local reporters.
The trip to South Carolina – a must stop for any presidential contender – is Jindal's first since last summer, when he helped Haley at her gubernatorial re-election campaign kickoff.
Saturday Jindal heads north of the border to speak at the North Carolina GOP's state party convention.
Next weekend, Jindal will address the Iowa Republican convention. The trip to the state that kicks off the presidential caucus and primary calendar will spark more 2016 speculation regarding Jindal.
But wait, there's more.
The following weekend Jindal joins other possible GOP White House hopefuls for the Faith and Freedom Coalition's Road to Majority conference, which is held in the nation's capital.
