Four years after his loss to Paul Ryan in the 2032 primaries in second position, Bobby Jindal makes another bid for President. He's seen as the favorite GOP candidate in the primaries. The fact that he's an Indian-American helps him to win the favor of the Asian-Americans. His main challengers are Ben Quayle, former Representative from Arizona and son of former Vice-President Dan Quayle, Scott Walker, former Governor of Wisconsin and Rand Paul, Senator from Kentucky. There is 2300 delegates to be chosen. To win the Republican Presidential nomination, a candidate must win 1150 delegates. During the primaries, Bobby Jindal puts foward his good handling of the Hurricane Gustav in Louisiana in 2008. He says this handling is the kind of thing to do against any threat against America. Ben Quayle puts foward the record of the George H. W. Bush's administration's (which his father Dan belonged to as Vice-President of the United States from 1989 to 1993) record to attract more votes. Jindal eventually wins the Republican Presidential nomination in early March. He selects Michael Powell, former chairman of the Federal Communications Commission and son of former Secretary of State Colin Powell, as his running mate. This choice allows Jindal to attract more African-American voters. The Republican National Convention is set in Charlotte, North Carolina.
