Jeb's Buying His Nomination

Bush (gag reflex suppressed here) intends to purchase his nomination.

...The former Florida governor, through his Right to Rise PAC, all but made a blunt declaration of his intent to seek the White House through contributions of $5,200 each to Sen. Kelly Ayotte and Rep. Frank Guinta of New Hampshire, Sen. Charles Grassley of Iowa, Sen. Tim Scott and Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina, Rep. Joe Heck of Nevada, and Rep. David Young of Iowa, as well as donations of $10,000 each to the state Republican parties of Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Florida.

The PAC also delivered $5,200 each to Sen. Richard Burr of North Carolina, Sen. Rob Portman of Ohio; and Rep. Barbara Comstock of Virginia, all of whom are running for re-election in battleground states....

...In addition to the predictable early state giving, Right to Rise contributed $5,200 each to four freshmen lawmakers: Rep. Mia Love of Utah, Congress’ only African-American Republican woman; Rep. Lee Zeldin of New York, Congress’ only Jewish Republican; Rep. Elise Stefanik of New York, the youngest female Republican ever to serve and considered a rising star in the party; and Rep. Martha McSally of Arizona, a military veteran...

So when all those folks start making nice-nice noises about the current RINO King, you'll know why.
