As Breitbart TV reported Friday, conservative commentator Pat Buchanan said he does not believe Jeb Bush will be the GOP presidential nominee in 2016 because of “the Common Core problem” and his push for amnesty for illegal immigrants.
Appearing on Laura Ingraham’s radio show, Buchanan pointed to Common Core and immigration as two of the main challenges Bush would need to overcome to win the Republican nomination.
“I don’t believe Jeb Bush is going to be the Republican nominee. I think the Common Core problem, and I think his ‘illegal immigration is an act of love’…I mean, he really put his foot down where he wanted to be,” Buchanan said.
Continuing, Buchanan stated, “I think that is on the other side of the place where the Republican nominee is going to be. So I would be very surprised–as a matter of fact, I would be astounded–if Jeb Bush stepped into the primaries and, you know, cut a wide swath and became the nominee.”
