With midterm elections nearing, the odometer on Gov. Bobby Jindal's perpetual "I'm not really running for president" campaign is soaring.

With midterm elections nearing, the odometer on Gov. Bobby Jindal's perpetual "I'm not really running for president" campaign is soaring. While he's staying out of Louisiana's Senate and House races, the governor is spending the majority of the week on the campaign trail out of state.

On Wednesday, Jindal was in Florida campaigning for U.S. Senate candidate Marco Rubio. Yesterday, Jindal traveled to Portsmouth, N.H. to stump for New Hampshire gubernatorial candidate John Stephen. Jindal also planned a stop over in New York City for Thursday and Friday to attend Republican Governors Association meetings and hold a fundraiser for his own re-election campaign.  And come Monday, Jindal is now scheduled to appear along with another oft-mentioned Republican presidential candidate, Mitt Romney, in Madison, Wis., at a campaign fundraiser and cocktail reception for Wisconsin gubernatorial candidate Scott Walker. The Advocate reports that the RGA and Stephen's campaign are covering Jindal's travel expenses to New Hampshire and New York.
