Jeb Nixes Senate Run

After this report  earlier in the day former Florida Governor Jeb Bush has confirmed that we won’t be running for the U.S. Senate. Democrats will rejoice that they will be spared a run against an accomplished and popular Republican who likely would have cleared the field in the primary. Bush is looking for a way to help the party. Hmmm. Let’s see. Is there an important open position, for which no stellar candidate has emerged, and in which a telegenic, articulate leader who has shown electoral success might be valuable? Let’s think about that one.

As for Florida, the Republicans might want to think, now that Bush has bugged out, about looking to one of the dynamic Hispanic state leaders such as state speaker Marco Rubio. While Harry Reid is busy nixing minority candidates for the Senate, the GOP could use some credible and effective conservatives who can do more than talk about minority outreach.
