Establishment “Republican” Jeb Bush will travel to South Carolina this weekend to participate in a town hall event hosted by U.S. Senator Tim Scott. You know … he’s the U.S. Senator from South Carolina who is currently not embarrassing himself on the national stage. And not missing key votes.
Anyway, Bush will appear with Scott at Bishop England High School (363 Seven Farms Drive) on Daniel Island this coming Saturday (October 24) at 8:40 a.m. EDT.
After a stint as one of the early frontrunners in early-voting South Carolina, Bush is drawing the support of only 5.7 percent of Palmetto State “Republicans” – according to aggregate polling data from Real Clear Politics.
That puts him in sixth place … behind Donald Trump (33.7 percent), Ben Carson (18.3 percent), Carly Fiorina (7 percent), Marco Rubio (6.7 percent) and Ted Cruz (6.3 percent).
“Right to Rise” – a super-PAC supporting Bush’s candidacy – has been running a barrage of television ads in South Carolina looking to boost Bush’s numbers.
Will it work? We’ll have to wait and see …
