BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Gov. Bobby Jindal got a question Wednesday that he has been asked many, many times, but perhaps not quite like this. When asking Jindal if he would run for president, FOX News host Bill Hemmer made it seem Jindal had decided not to run. 
 
"Three more candidates have signed up for the race for the White House. You're not one of them," Hemmer said. "I know you're going to make a decision at the end of June. It doesn't sound like to me you're running. Is that the case?"
 
Jindal responded. "Bill, we're looking very seriously at getting into this race," Jindal responded. "One of the things we have done differently, we have spent the last year and a half thinking what the next president needs to do. We've come up with detailed policies on foreign policy, education, healthcare, energy. 

"A lot of people are thinking about polls, fundraising and consulting, we're actually thinking about what the next president needs to do. We need a big change in DC. If I were to get into this race, we'd be ready on the first day."

"Alright, that's a maybe then right? You're not saying yes or no in that answer," pressed Hemmer for clarification. "What is the answer?"
 
Jindal stuttered briefly before adding, "We're looking very hard at getting into this race. We'll make that decision as soon as our session is over."
