NEW ORLEANS — Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal  sat down for an exclusive interview with The Foundry last night, touching on topics ranging from his thinking about a 2016 presidential race and the Republican Party’s brand to his state’s economic growth and the left’s assault on the First Amendment.

In the first part of our interview,  the Republican governor explained why he’s thinking about running for president in 2016, and his thoughts on how to improve the GOP brand.

Part two of the interview covers Jindal’s thoughts on why liberals aren’t tolerant of Americans’ religious freedom.

In the final segment, Jindal talks about his friendship with the “Duck Dynasty” family and why he spoke out in defense of patriarch Phil Robertson last year.

The Foundry carried Jindal’s full speech live The Heritage Foundation’s Resource Bank meeting last night.
