Jeb Bush’s Status Quo SC Swing




|| By FITSNEWS || Former Florida governor Jeb Bush will pay a visit to early voting South Carolina next month – addressing a group of crony capitalists in the Palmetto Upstate and a gathering of “Republican” lawmakers in Columbia, S.C.

Yeah … can a political swing get any more “status quo” than that?

According to The Greenville News, Bush will address a breakfast meeting of the Upstate Chamber Coalition on Tuesday, March 17, 2015.  That gathering of government-subsidized “economic developers” will be held at the Embassy Suites Greenville Golf Resort and Conference Center at 8:00 a.m. EDT.

From there, Bush will travel to Columbia, S.C. to address a gathering of the S.C. House “Republican” Caucus.  That event is not open to the public.

Recent polling shows Bush running neck-and-neck with Wisconsin governor Scott Walker for the early lead in the Palmetto State’s “First in the South” presidential primary.

Since Bush’s unofficial entry into the 2016 race in December, he’s become the clear “establishment” choice in the GOP primary.  That position solidified last month when 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney decided against mounting a third presidential bid.

Our view on Bush?

“Beyond the stigma associated with his family, Bush has adopted some ill-advised ‘centrist’ positions in an effort to endear himself to the mushy middle of the American electorate,” we wrote last October, adding that “the higher he rises the further he veers to the left.”
