Jeb: I Hated Being the Front-Runner — ‘I Feel Much Better Back Here’


Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Republican presidential candidate former Gov. Jeb Bush (R-FL) said he “hated” being his party’s presidential nomination front-runner.

Host John Dickerson said, “Six months ago, people thought you were the front-runner–”

Bush said, “I hated that.”

Dickerson asked, “You hated being the front-runner?”

Bush said, “I feel much better back here.”

Dickerson said, “Why did you hate being the front-runner?”

Bush said, “Well because I’ve always thought that there was going to be a high expectation for me, and I totally get it … because I have brother that was president, a father that was president. That higher expectation was important to realize. And so being a front-runner made me feel like the people are going to begin to say, ‘Your guy is just dancing like through this.’ I have to go earn it. I have higher expectations on me than people have on me. So it doesn’t bother me a bit that the expectations are higher. I want to win which mean that you garner momentum when it matters. So, I feel good about where we are right now.”
