2016 Watch – Jeb Bush headed to Ohio

in Uncategorized by

 Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is the latest potential 2016 Republican presidential contender to plan a visit to swing-state Ohio.

Bush will headline a June 16 Republican National Committee fundraising event in Cincinnati with GOP chairman Reince Priebus.

That will follow a sold-out appearance May 16 by Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky at the Hamilton County Republican Party’s Lincoln-Reagan Day dinner. Paul, who’s considering a run for the nomination, said he will return to Cincinnati in July for the National Urban League conference.

The Bush invitations first reported by Cincinnati public radio station WVXU say tickets start at $1,000 each to attend a reception. They range up to $64,800 for couples to serve as event chairs along with dinner, photo opportunities and a round-table discussion.
