WASHINGTON (CNN) — Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, who has been actively exploring a campaign for the Republican presidential nomination, will announce his decision later this month, CNN has learned.

Jindal is “likely to announce his plans to seek the GOP nomination,” said a person close to the Louisiana governor, with knowledge of the announcement.

The Louisiana governor will make his intentions known at a June 24th event in New Orleans.

In May, Jindal established a federal committee to formally evaluate a presidential bid and created a web site touting his possible entry into the race.

“If I run, my candidacy will be based on the idea that the American people are ready to try a dramatically different direction,” he said at the time. “Not a course correction, but a dramatically different path.”

A CNN/ORC International survey released Tuesday shows that Jindal is polling at 1% nationally.
