Two top aides to Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, deputy chief of staff Taylor Teepell and legislative affairs director Matt Parker, have officially left the governor’s office and will be setting up shop in Iowa as part of a possible Jindal run for the White House in 2016.

Last month Jindal created the America Future Project, which will employ the two men.

The Republican governor’s office announced the resignations Tuesday. Jindal’s chief political adviser Timmy Teepell explained where the two men – his brother and brother-in-law – were going next.

According to the WDSU report, a formal announcement from the Louisiana Gov “isn’t expected until after the state legislative session ends in mid-June”.
