Jindal, considered a potential GOP presidential candidate, is slated to headline a major congressional fundraiser that coincidentally fell on the same night as Obama's planned news conference.
Jindal was widely panned for his televised response to Obama's address to Congress last month.
His performance drew a flurry of unflattering comparisons to Kenneth, the nerdy page from "30 Rock" -- with facebook groups like "Bobby Jindal is Kenneth the Page" popping up and YouTube videos sprouting up across the web.
This time, he will speak to a live audience of Republican faithful in Washington. And his speech — scheduled well before Obama's news conference — will likely begin before Obama's evening remarks.
