Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal announced Thursday the formation of “America Next,” an organization designed to forge and promote conservative policy ideas.

Right after a bruising spending stalemate that tarnished the GOP’s poll numbers, Mr. Jindal, a Republican, pitched the new group as one that will focus on can-do solutions in areas such as health care, education and energy policy.


“Conservatives have failed to articulate and sell a national policy agenda to the country, a vision of what conservative policies can accomplish when put into practice,” Mr. Jindal said. “We’ve detailed the awful things the Obama Administration has done, all the failings of The Left, and we’ve pledged to undo as much of that as we can. However, the American people demand more than that, and they should. “

Jill E. Neunaber, who most recently managed Gabriel Gomez’s failed Republican bid to win a vacant Senate seat from Massachusetts, will serve as the organization’s executive director.
