NEW ORLEANS (Reuters) – Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, seen as a rising star in the Republican Party, declared victory Saturday in his state’s gubernatorial election.

“You’ve chosen to give me another four years as your governor,” he told supporters less than an hour after polls closed. “We’ve got a lot more work to do over these next four years.”

Jindal had been viewed as a potential vice presidential contender in 2012 but has said he would serve out his term if re-elected.
