Bobby Jindal attending religious rally in swing through S.C.

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal

Presidential hopeful Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal will be in South Carolina this weekend, including an appearance at The Response, a religious rally at the North Charleston Coliseum.

Jindal is scheduled to meet with Gov. Nikki Haley on Friday afternoon at the Governor’s Mansion in Columbia, his office said.

On Saturday, Jindal will speak at The Response. Organizers hope to draw at least 10,000 people for a rally they say is to pray for a nation in crisis. Haley will also speak at the gathering, which runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Jindal is expected to declare his White House plans June 24.
