With Jeb Bush struggling to connect with some Republican activists, his campaign has begun exploring whether to bring in the person it thinks may be best equipped to give him a boost with skeptical conservatives: his brother George W. Bush.
The 43rd president is a very popular figure among Republican voters and could deliver a needed jolt to his brother’s sluggish campaign.
Advisers to Jeb Bush in this crucial early primary state have asked national campaign officials in recent weeks to send in George Bush, 69, who so far has appeared only at private fund-raisers, to vouch for his younger brother on the campaign trail.
The request for reinforcement underlines the growing urgency that backers of Jeb Bush, the former Florida governor, feel as other candidates vault ahead of him by stirring the passions of the party’s base.
Yes, yes, yes, what a splendid idea!
And the great thing about it is that it will stir the passions in the base of BOTH parties!
You know if I were a consultant for the Jeb! campaign I would suggest just as many photo-ops with his brother as possible. I'm talking tons!
Hey maybe they could do a joint appearance on an aircraft carrier wearing matching flight suits?
Oh god, PLEASE make this happen!
(Sorry I got a little over excited there. I think I may have to change my pants now.)
Wait, wait how about this?
(Yep I am definitely going to have to change my pants.)
