"Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal won't waste any time returning to Iowa in 2015. The two-term Republican governor and potential 2016 presidential candidate will hold two closed-door meetings with Iowa religious leaders in Cedar Rapids and Des Moines on Jan. 6. The lunch and dinner events are intended to allow pastors to quiz the candidates and sound out their views without the press and public present. The meetings are sponsored by the American Renewal Project, a socially conservative group that organizes pastors on political matters. The group has held similar events in recent years with Republican presidential candidates in Iowa." — Jason Noble in the Des Moines Register. Iowa will be the first state to hold presidential caucuses in the 2016 presidential election, and Jindal spent time there making speeches in September and December.
