    after Hurricane Katrina. Jindal in the meantime never really stopped campaigning for governor. So by the time he ran again, he pretty much won over much of the Republican base. Blanco chose to run for reelection and Democrats really couldn't muster any strong candidates against Jindal. Democrats nominated some no name state senators and Jindal easily broke 50% in the jungle primary, eliminating any chance of a runoff.

    To give you an idea of how well Jindal consolidated his support just look at these two maps:
    2003 (first run)
    2007 (2nd run)
