“It’s up to her to make the case to voters,” Jindal said in an interview on “Political Capital With Al Hunt” on Bloomberg Television.

Jindal, 39, was asked about recent comments by Joe Scarborough, an MSNBC commentator and former Republican congressman from Florida, who said it was time for Republicans to “man up” and recognize the former Alaska governor is a reality TV show star who cannot be elected.

Jindal said he is “biased towards governors and those that have run organizations and executives who’ve had to balance budgets, make tough choices.”
