Bush Meets with Campaign Operatives

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) met with a group of his former staffers at a Washington, D.C. hotel, National Review reports.

"Bush, a potential 2016 presidential contender, spent an hour in the hotel's Cannon room, reminiscing and entertaining questions about his political future... Neil Newhouse, Mitt Romney's campaign pollster, was at the meeting, as were several veteran Florida operatives."

Joe Conason: "Jeb's business dealings may well prove an insurmountable obstacle to a national candidacy, just as Romney's business career became excess baggage for his presidential campaign. Known today only as another Bush brother, Jeb must be introduced to American voters. And among the first things they are likely to learn about him is the string of borderline business deals that built his original fortune in Florida real estate, which began three decades ago."
