If you're a Republican and you're contemplating running for president, one of the required stops in New York State is the annual dinner of the Conservative Party in Manhattan.
And true to form, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is slated to address the party's annual gathering on Oct. 8 at the Sheraton Towers Hotel.
The Manhattan location has traditionally served as a bully pulpit for many national Republicans, and is sure to prove the same for Jindal as interest in the 2016 presidential race begins to percolate and his name continues to be included on the list of potential GOP candidates.
