Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal (R-LA) announced on Monday that he is forming a presidential exploratory committee for a possible Presidential run in in 2016. This has been a virtual certainty for months (maybe even years) now, but it’s nice to see it official. Jindal is a solid conservative option and a man of great character.

ABC News is reporting that Ohio Governor John Kasich (R-OH) is all but assured to also throw his hat in the ring as a contender for the GOP nomination in 2016. The Governor of Ohio is not as consistently conservative as Jindal, but Kasich does enjoy a much higher approval rating (in his home state) than Gov. Jindal.
