Gov. Scott Walker told the Tampa Bay Times that he thinks Jeb Bush will be the GOP fundraising leader for the first quarter.
Said Walker: “Yeah, he’ll have by far the biggest report. There’s a lot of people who are loyal to that family because of an ambassadorship or an appointment or something like that, so those people are going to show up big on his first report. What we’re hoping going forward are not donors of obligation but donors of passion, people who are passionate about the reforms we bring to the table.”
However, it’s also interesting that Walker suggested to Breitbart that he was the GOP frontrunner: “Well, it suggests maybe we’re the front-runner if somebody is taking an active interest in what a state governor is doing, particularly in light of the fact that we’re not the only one.”
