Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush continues to press forward with his likely 2016 presidential run, as Team Bush has just announced the hiring of Republican Iowa strategist David Kochel, who will take the lead over at his Right to Rise PAC.
Bush has also opened his Tallahassee, Florida, headquarters, which is already staffed with about ten staffers.
Bush is running, and there really is not reason to believe he would back down now.
Prominent Tea Party activists and leaders nationwide are gearing up for an anti-Bush campaign, believing that if Jeb Bush wins the GOP presidential nomination in 2016, the Democrat presidential nominee will win.
The makings of a huge intraparty rumble between establishment Republicans and conservative activists is in the works, especially now that Mitt Romney has announced that he will not be running for office, crowning Bush as the establishment candidate.
