Unfortunately, it’s Bobby Jindal.

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) on Tuesday announced he is suspending his campaign for the White House.
“I’ve come to the realization that it is not my time,” Jindal said during an early evening Fox News interview with Bret Baier. “I am suspending my campaign for president of the United States.
“I cannot tell you what an honor it has been to run for president of the United States,” he added.
Jindal’s campaign failed to resonate with voters since his entrance into the 2016 race last summer.
He never appeared in a main stage GOP presidential debate based on his low polling numbers, which often have registered at or below 1 percent.During the Fox interview, Jindal declined to immediately name a GOP rival that he would support. Fourteen candidates remain in the Republican race.“Going forward, I believe we have to be the party of growth and we can never stop being the party that believes in opportunity,” Jindal said in a statement on his decision.“We cannot settle for The Left’s view of envy and division. We have to be the party that says everyone in this country – no matter the circumstances of their birth or who their parents are – can succeed in America,” he added.
In most ways I would have preferred a former Governor to be the GOP Nominee for President, as a Governor would bring executive branch experience to the office that has been sorely missed over the last seven years.
