If former Florida Governor Jeb Bush runs for president in 2016, he will reportedly double down on amnesty for illegal immigrants and Common Core.
According to Politico, George H.W. Bush, his father, is reportedly “eager for his son to run” to see “a return of the family dynasty to power,” which Bush Sr. thinks would be “a near certainty.”
“People who have spoken with Bush say he is much less concerned about the rough ride he undoubtedly would have in the GOP primaries,” Politico reported. “They say if he runs, the former governor will absolutely not back off his stances but rather attempt to sell them to his party in the primaries and make the case that he would be the strongest Republican nominee to take on Hillary Clinton.”
This week, though President Barack Obama delayed his executive amnesty to help Senate Democrats remain in power, Bush said that Republicans should push amnesty legislation if they take back the Senate.
“And my hope is with a Republican-controlled Senate, we can begin to see a conversation about how to go about [passing comprehensive amnesty legislation],” Bush reportedly said at an event for North Carolina Republican Senate candidate Thom Tillis.
