Jeb Bush’s move to “actively explore” running for president is likely to pressure New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who is weighing a run for the Republican nomination, the Wall Street Journal reports.
“Christie hasn’t formed a political-action committee – which he needs to operate nationally – and hasn’t built out a network of staffers in early 2016 primary states. Aides have declined to say whether he is being briefed on national or international issues, and he has often ducked questions on issues outside New Jersey, saying he is only the governor.”
Bloomberg: “Bush’s move toward a 2016 presidential bid is likely to speed up the primary process by forcing the hands of other potential candidates.”
