Just three days after Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal penned a letter to President Barack Obama urging him to “pause the process of [Syrian] refugees coming to the United States” following the Daesh-led terrorist attacks on Paris, the low-polling GOP presidential hopeful has announced that he is no longer seeking the 2016 Republican nomination, Reuters reports.

Saying “this is not my time,” Jindal suggested that the “crazy” election season was behind the tepid interest in his campaign and urged the Republican Party to start taking itself seriously.

“We spent a lot of time developing detailed policy papers, and given this crazy, unpredictable election season, clearly there just wasn’t a lot of interest,” Jindal said on Fox News after announcing his exit from the race.

“I think the Republican Party has to lay out the pathway why we are the party for opportunity and growth.

Jindal, once considered the GOP’s minority, golden boy, even delivering the Republican response to President Obama’s first State of the Union address in 2009, received a dismal 0.8 percent of support in a recent Reuters/Ipsos poll.
