Potential GOP vice presidential candidates
The Louisiana governor is the nation's first Indian-American governor. He graduated with honors from Brown University at age 20, went on to become a Rhodes Scholar, and started his career with McKinsey & Co. He became the youngest secretary of Louisiana's Department of Health and Hospitals.
He lost a 2003 campaign for governor, went on to serve in the US House, and, in 2007, ran again for governor. He was lampooned after a poor performance delivering the GOP's response to Obama's first address to a Joint Session of Congress, but has since seen his stature recover.
