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.
