Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal told South Dakota Republicans the nation needs a change in leadership so federal spending can be cut, jobs can be created and young people can have a brighter future.
In a speech to the South Dakota Republican Party's state convention Friday night, Jindal said President Barack Obama has run up record deficits without improving the economy of putting enough people back to work.
Jindal, mentioned as a possible running mate for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, urged the South Dakota Republicans to help Romney beat Obama in the fall election.
But South Dakota Democratic Party Chairman Ben Nesselhuf says Jindal is just promoting policies that didn't work under former Republican President George Bush. He says employment has grown for two straight years under Obama.
