Pam Bondi heading to NH to stump for Romney; Bobby Jindal heading to Fla



Attorney General Pam Bondi is scheduled to head to the battleground state of New Hampshire. Bondi, has a rising profile in the party for her and Bill McCollum's lawsuit to overturn ObamaCare, will headline a series of events including a "Women for Mitt" breakfast in Concord and a lunch with supporters in Bedford.

“Pam Bondi is a rising star in the Republican Party, a strong advocate for fiscal responsibility, and a leader in the fight to crack down on human trafficking. Governor Romney appreciates Attorney General Bondi's support and he is grateful that she has agreed to help him spread his message of lower taxes and limited government in New Hampshire.”

Another rising GOP star, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, is coming to south Florida Saturday for the grand opening of Romney's Coral Springs campaign office. There's nothing unusual about bringing in high profile surrogates to generate a crowd and publicity, but it is a bit odd that Louisiana's governor is opening Romney campaign offices in Florida, whose own governor doesn't seem to do anything with the campaign.
