Sunday evening non-surprise from Jeb Bush

in Uncategorized by

Amidst widespread speculation (including a post on my blog) that, with Mitch Daniels deciding not to run for President, Jeb Bush will quickly become the latest dream candidate of the Republican establishment, the former Governor of Florida emailed a statement Sunday evening:

“While, I am flattered by everyone’s encouragement, my decision has not changed…

“I will not be a candidate for president in 2012.”
