|| By FITSNEWS || A pair of “Republican” U.S. Senators endorsed the candidacy of former Florida governor Jeb Bush this week.

U.S. Senators Dean Heller of Nevada and Orrin Hatch of Utah announced their support for Bush – with Heller praising his “pragmatic, conservative, principled leadership” and Hatch touting his record of “cutting taxes, fostering job creation, and reforming government.”

“Jeb believes in growing the party and uniting it as he runs for president,” Heller said. “That’s exactly what America needs. Someone who has the vision, the experience, and the ability to bring our nation forward to experience the best days ahead of it.”

Nevada is currently scheduled to hold its presidential primary caucus on February 23 – following Iowa, New Hampshire and “First in the South” South Carolina.

Bush’s campaign announced the endorsements ahead of a campaign swing through the Silver State – which is considered one of the critical “swing states” in the 2016 general election.

Hurray for Jebito. Don’t Utah and Nevada have a lot of hispanics. Let’s check wiki – Utah – 13%, Nevada – 26%. Well we clearly see where this is going.

Nice add on Wil. Looking at the schedule, and how things are likely to fall out, I would expect Donald to jump Reform / Independent around mid-April. Here’s what we could expect:

End of Feb Delegate Count – Trump 35, Bush 21, Kasich 21, Waker 15, Rubio 11

And Trump will be all over “I’m winning.”

Now it starts to go “unfair” for Trump

Mid-March Count – Trump 340, Bush 204, Kasich 204, Walker 146, Rubio 96. Most states at that point are proportional especially TX but Trumpito is still winning.

End of March Count – Trump 340, Bush 424, Kasich 270, Walker gone, Rubio 107.

Now Donaldo is pissed. He was getting proportional delegates and enjoying victory, now the Eee-iiistablishment is screwing him over. He’s losing to Bush.

Donald announces he’s exploring Independent bid as his threat (but he’s already started the groundwork for petitions in all 50 states using social media)

When Bush carries NY mid-April and snags all 95 delegates he goes to 617, more than halfway home, and Donald pulls the trigger.

At that point, it’s down to Kasich (who’s emassed 519 delegates mid May, and Bush at 782. That’s when the PAC turbo-cash sets in, Bush gets it mid-June. But….. by July 1, Trump is lawyered up, and has the petitions in place to get on the ballots in all 50 states. There’s going to be an ugly Eee-iiistablishment / Bush PAC lawsuit onslaught to try and stop him, and it will get ugly through August. By end of GOP Convention – they’ll have lost the lawsuits, and be trailing Hillary or Uncle Joe (and possibly Trump himself).

Final Results – Hillary or Uncle Joe – 45%, Trump 23%, Bush 32%.

Kasich won’t get out of the first few primaries, if he gets that far, because, well, who is the Kasich primary voter? Those who want someone with gubernatorial experience will go to Bush or Walker first and then probably Jindal; those who prefer conservatism fiery and/or unhinged have a whole buffet to choose from. Kasich as far as I can see is always the “other” option. Oh, sure, there are Republicans out there who could be on board for “boring competent conservative,” but recent history suggests they don’t show up for primaries. I’m just not seeing the Kasich groundswell. Hell, we barely think of him at all here in Ohio.

Unless Kasich is entirely delusional, he also knows he has no chance, which makes you wonder what his endgame actually is. VP? Maaaaaaaybe….to bad he expanded Medicaid and had to raise taxes…

Somehow I bet Kasich outperforms Jingle.

Bet you dinner Bush won’t be nominee.Rubio has MORE than enough money to match Bush and Trump will support Rubio.My ‘people’ in Florida have assured me of that.

Rocky you can give up on amnesty and citizenship for illegals. Ain’t gonna happen. Hispanics ain’t voting Republican anyway.They got sucked onto the perpetual welfare train with blacks during the recession and only want freebies now.

Orrin Hatch? He’s still around? What is he now, 175? I recall that decades ago, he was or at least seemed to be very much Pro-2A. Off the top of my head I can’t cite specifics but seems that he may have turned like that half gallon of eggnog left over from last Christmas.
