Former Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal has endorsed U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida in the race for the GOP presidential nomination.

Jindal made the announcement during an appearance on “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren” on Fox News Friday.

“Marco has been consistent about strengthening America’s foreign policy,” Jindal said.

He also stressed Rubio’s electability. Rubio came in third place in this week’s Iowa caucuses and has seen rising polling numbers in the days since.

“We’ve got to turn the page on the Obama administration,” said Jindal, who left office Jan. 11. “Marco can unify our party. He can win this election in November.”
