Jindal raises campaign cash in Mississippi

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Gov. Bobby Jindal has gone to Mississippi for a fundraiser for his 2011 re-election bid.

Jindal's office says the governor traveled to Jackson, Miss., on Friday to raise campaign dollars. Spokesman Kyle Plotkin wouldn't say who was hosting the event or where it was being held, saying that information would be available from campaign finance reports due next year.

Campaign finance reports do not list fundraising hosts or locations directly. Jindal has attended a string of out-of-state fundraisers this year. Other trips have taken him to Tennessee, California, Texas, North Carolina, Arkansas, Florida, Illinois and Massachusetts.

Jindal's campaign fund topped $3 million by the end of 2008, according to the latest campaign finance report he's filed with the state ethics board.
