Jeb Bush Florida Senate Candidacy – All of Us Will Lay Down For Jeb

Jeb bush June 2008

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush answers questions at the Excellence in Action conference, a national summit on education reform, in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. Still popular in Florida, former Gov. Jeb Bush said Wednesday that he’s interested in the seat Sen. Mel Martinez is giving up, and the field of possible candidates could quickly narrow to make way for the president’s younger brother, June 19, 2008.

Jeb’s announcement that he is “interested” in the Mel Martinez U.S. Senate seat FREEZES the field of Democrats and Republicans.

The potential Senate candidacy of Jeb Bush is clearing the decks of Democratic and Republican challengers in the Sunshine State — as intended. 

Politicians from both sides of the aisle said the former governor of Florida and brother of President Bush is popular enough to scare away Republican and Democratic challengers before many really consider a bid for the seat being vacated by the retiring Sen. Mel Martinez (R).

“It has Jeb’s name on it,” said Bob Butterworth, the state’s former Democratic four-term attorney general and secretary of the Department of Children and Families. “He has the potential to scare away people on both sides of the aisle.”

“He’s going to take his time to decide this, but it’s his for the taking,” agreed Washington lobbyist Al Cardenas, a two-term chairman of the Republican Party of Florida and one of Bush’s closest friends. “He’s been really disappointed with the party’s performance, and he sees this as a chance to reinvigorate it and help it follow a new path. This is a call to arms for him.”  

If Jeb Bush says he is interested then he is running.
