Jeb Bush's Wife Key to 2016 Decision

"Republican donors and operatives are chattering about Bush's publicity-shy wife, so worried she isn't on board with a 2016 White House run that they're urging people in the family's orbit to make the case," Politico reports.

"Columba Bush has long been deeply averse to the spotlight, especially after an embarrassing encounter with U.S. Customs while her husband was still in office. Donors also wonder whether Bush is willing to subject his family and their personal lives to the inevitable scrutiny that comes with a national campaign. Two of his children have been in the news in past years for arrests linked to drug problems and public intoxication."
