Our Governor is leaving Louisiana again, this time for Minnesota?

Jindal will fundraise for GOP, Emmer

Minnesota Republicans are looking for a boost from the bayou.

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is headed to Minnesota on Sept. 13 for fundraisers benefiting the Republican Party and gubernatorial candidate Tom Emmer.

Gov. Tim Pawlenty and GOP chair Tony Sutton will chair the first event on Monday afternoon, with Reps. Michele Bachmann and Erik Paulsen serving as “honorary event chairs,” according to an invite obtained by the Star Tribune.
Bob Ulrich and Brad Anderson, former CEOs of Target and Best Buy respectively, will be “honorary finance chairs.”

Both Jindal and Pawlenty are said to be eying a run at the presidency in 2012.
The minimum donation to attend the Minneapolis Hilton event is $1,000, though guests can pay $10,000 to be part of the “host committee.”

Immediately afterward, Jindal will turn his attention to Emmer at a $500 per person reception in the same hotel.
