Arkansas Republicans heard from a potential Vice-presidential nominee, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, who told the partisan crowd that Obama's one term as President should be his last.
The state GOP is holding its party convention in Hot Springs this weekend.
Our content partner, Fox 16 News, reports via the Associated Press:
“This election is important not just for us but for our children and grandchildren. We have to make sure President Obama is a one-term president,” Jindal said.
The Louisiana governor has been mentioned as a possible GOP vice presidential candidate. After his speech, he said he wouldn't answer questions about whether he was undergoing a review by Romney, the presumed GOP nominee, or anyone else.
Jindal also told the GOP party faithful at its Reagan-Rockefeller dinner on Friday night that Republican prospects to take control of th
e Arkansas Legislature were doable.
“We did it in Louisiana. You can do it in Arkansas as well,” Jindal said.
Arkansas has seen a political shift in recent years and the GOP is hopeful that it could claim a majority in either legislative chamber this fall. They need to flip five seats in the House and three in the Senate to win majorities in both chambers.
Republicans control one of two U.S. Senate seats in Arkansas and three of the four House seats in Congress. Fourth District GOP nominee Tom Cotton is considered the favorite to win the open Congressional seat versus Democratic nomineee Gene Jeffress.
