Jindahl: GOP needs to change

Posted:

 

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is calling on the Republican Party to, quote, "recalibrate the compass of conservatism."

The Republican governor will deliver the keynote address at the Republican National Committee's winter meeting Thursday night in Charlotte, N.C.

In speech excerpts released earlier in the day, Jindal says the GOP doesn't need to change its principles, but, in his words, "might need to change just about everything else we do."

As Republicans try to rebound from November's painful losses, Jindal says that the shift in the party must come from outside of Washington. The GOP is too focused on number-crunching on Capitol Hill, he says, and not focused enough on economic growth across the nation.

He's the latest high-profile Republican outside of Washington to call for sweeping changes inside the GOP.
