Can Jeb Bush Get the Support of Conservatives?

I will say it again, and I am sure many of you will disagree with me and tell me to go take a hike, but as much as I disagree with him and believe he is dead wrong for supporting Common Core education standards and amnesty for illegal aliens, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush has a pretty darn conservative track record.

Now that I got that off my chest, and attempt to dodge the tomatoes being hurled at me, let’s get back to the campaign trail.

Bush continues to barnstorm across the country in an effort to shore up as much support and campaign dinero from donors and potential supporters in those all-important early primary voting states like South Carolina, Iowa, Nevada, and Florida.

Even though Bush seems to be vacuuming up all the low-lying Republican donations, his big problem is, and will continue to be, with the conservative grassroots faction that makes up the majority of the Republican Party.

Bush didn’t do himself any favors with them during his much talked about Q&A session with Sean Hannity last week during CPAC, when he quadrupled-down on his support for a pathway to citizenship for illegal aliens.

With his protégé and friend Senator Marco Rubio signaling plans to make a run for president as well, it will be very interesting to see how much support Rubio chips away from Bush, as the two men both share many of the same supporters and donors.
