NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

Governor Bobby Jindal says he'll make a decision about whether he will run for president by the end of June. Until now, Jindal has said only that he would make a decision after the legislative session. The session wraps in the middle of June.

If Jindal decides to run, he will join an already crowded field of republicans going after the GOP nomination. Those who have already announced they're running include former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee. 

Three senators are in the race: Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio. Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson and former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina round out the list of candidates.
