Rhode Island Republican-turned-Democrat Lincoln Chafee announced his presidential campaign Wednesday, and with it, his desire to see the U.S. convert to the metric system standard of weights and measures. Almost immediately, Gov. Bobby Jindal’s spokesman Michael Reed responded by attacking Chafee in an email to Politico, saying, “Typical Democrat — wants to make America more European. Governor Jindal would rather make the world more American.”
