Jeb Bush tells his donors they’ve helped make history
Jeb Bush told about 350 of the top donors to his super PAC on Sunday evening that the organization has raised more money in its first 100 days than any other Republican operation in modern history, according to several people in attendance.
Yes, they have helped “make history.” They’ve helped make quality governance a thing of the past.
But you’ll be glad to know that even Jeb Bush and his Stupor PAC has its limits:
The former Florida governor has spent the past several months on a nonstop fundraising blitz, headlining high-priced finance events at country clubs and resorts nationwide. Money has come in at such a rapid clip that his aides temporarily limited donations to $1 million.
Anything more than $1,000,000 might lend the suggestion of bribery, after all.
Bush aides said that about 350 people signed up to attend the donor conference. Among the people spotted at the hotel were … (snip) … Miami-based lobbyist Al Cardenas and his son, David Cardenas… (snip)
Al Cardenas ran the American Conservative Union until not long after 2014’s CPAC, and of course the ACU puts on CPAC. Now you know why CPAC was such a turkey in the last handful number of years, and why this year’s version was slightly better.
Now I’m starting to think that Jeb Bush won’t miss Sheldon Adelson’s money, which is going to that other Miami-based Presidential candidate.
