Virginia is home to the only high-profile, competitive governor race in the country this fall. So Cuccinelli and Democratic candidate Terry McAuliffe have attracted a lot of outside political figures and money to their campaigns.
According to Politico, Jindal attempted to tie McAuliffe, best known as a prolific Democratic fundraiser and confidant of the Clintons, to the failings of President Barack Obama during the appearance yesterday.
"You've got a clear choice in this election, and Virginia, you can choose to endorse, follow and double down on the failed liberal policies coming out of Washington, D.C.," Jindal told a crowd of 150 Cuccinelli supporters.
McAuliffe's high-profile support may have put pressure on conservative luminaries like Jindal to step up their game and campaign for the Republican. Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, Florida Rep. Marco Rubio and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum have all helped out with the Cuccinelli campaign recently.
The Republican Governors Association, which Jindal chairs, has also invested $8 million in Cuccinelli ahead of the Nov. 5 election. Still, Cuccinelli, Virginia's sitting attorney general, trailed McAuliffe, who has never held elected office, by 12 points in the latest Washington Post poll.
