Gov. Bobby Jindal hit the road Thursday to attend political events in Virginia and Illinois.
The governor’s press office said Jindal’s first stop will be in Virginia to attend an event for Gov. Bob McDonnell’s Opportunity Virginia PAC.
From Virginia, Jindal is scheduled to travel to Chicago to address the Conservative Political Action Conference and to attend a fundraiser for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign.
Jindal’s press office said the governor will return to Baton Rouge on Friday.
