Fresh off a stinging political defeat in a northeast Louisiana congressional race, Gov. Bobby Jindal is facing calls to re-engage with Louisiana residents and elected officials rather than travel about the nation in pursuit of his evident presidential ambitions.

For months, Gov. Bobby Jindal has boasted that Louisiana has a lower unemployment rate than the national average.
