Bobby Jindal asks prayers for son
The Republican Congressional candidate in the 1st District asked supporters last week to pray for his month-old son Shaan who has been diagnosed with a congenital heart defect. In an e-mail message, Jindal said doctors expect the boy to be able to live a normal life but that in the next few weeks he is likely to need medication and surgery. A campaign official said the situation is not expected to affect Jindal's run for the House seat being vacated by Representative David Vitter, R-Metairie, who is running for the US Senate.
