Meanwhile, Former presidential candidate Michele Bachmann said that Mr. Jindal won the yesterday night debate.

“Cheers to @BobbyJindal, it’s time for Republicans in Washington to fight!” she said. “Watching the #GOPDebate with millenials, their response is favorable towards @BobbyJindal whose responses have been strong and specific,” she wrote on twitter.
