BATON ROUGE -- Those purple-and-gold "Tigers for Jindal" stickers are about to become collectors' items.
Under fire from university officials, U.S. Rep. Bobby Jindal's campaign agreed Wednesday to stop distributing bumper stickers that use Louisiana State University's famous color scheme and nickname to promote the congressman's run for governor.
Spokesmen for the New Orleans Saints and Tulane University said Jindal's campaign has also agreed to stop appropriating their color schemes and nicknames as it seeks to put the congressman's name before as many voters as possible before the Oct. 20 primary.
(Jindal spokesperson) Melissa Sellers confirmed in an e-mailed message that the marketing scheme would come to an end, though she stopped short of saying the campaign would stop distributing the stickers it has on hand.
"We are not planning to print any more 'Tigers for Jindal' stickers. We are all out of Saints ones," Sellers wrote.
The tempest arose after LSU officials noticed purple-and-gold "Tigers for Jindal" bumper stickers on vehicles around the capital city.
