Bobby Jindal, raised Hindu, uses Christian conversion to woo GOP base for 2016 run

“I was struck and struck hard,” Jindal told the pastors. “This was the Son of God, and he had died for our sins.”

Jindal’s session with the Christian clergy, who lead congregations in the important early presidential battleground states of Iowa and South Carolina, was part of an early behind-the-scenes effort by the Louisiana governor to find a political base that could help propel him into the top tier of Republican candidates seeking to run for the White House in 2016.

Known in Republican circles mostly for his mastery of policy issues such as health care, Jindal, a Rhodes Scholar and graduate of the Ivy League’s Brown University, does not have an obvious pool of existing activist supporters to help drive excitement outside of his home state.
