Jeb Bush Launches Tailgate Events at SEC Games

Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush is mixing his campaign for president with SEC football by announcing a series of tailgate events at Tennessee, Alabama, and Mississippi State games.

“As a successful conservative governor from an SEC state,” the Bush campaign press release reads, “Jeb’s looking forward to competing in the SEC primary and bringing some fun to the process.”

The release asks fans to meet Jeb “and maybe even take a few selfies.”

Bush already appeared at the South Carolina Gamecocks vs Georgia Bulldogs game in Georgia last month and will next appear in Tennessee on October 10, Alabama on the 7th, and Mississippi on November 7.

During the Gamecocks vs Bulldogs game, Bush waded out into the sea of fans taking selfies, kissing babies, and shaking hands.

In order to sell the events, team Bush did a re-design of the SEC logo to accompany its Tweet on the subject.
