The Oxford-educated son of Indian immigrants has added diversity to the Republican field, which includes African-American neurosurgeon Ben Carson and businesswoman Carly Fiorina.

Unpopular in his home state after a budget shortfall, Bobby Jindal was considered a longtime nominee.

Bobby Jindal joins former Texas Gov. Rick Perry and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who have also suspended their presidential campaigns.
