Senator Jeb Bush?… “Thanks, But No Thanks”
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) – Former Gov. Jeb Bush says he won’t run for the U.S. Senate in 2010 to replace the retiring Mel Martinez.
Bush made the announcement Tuesday, saying “now is not the right time to return to elected office.”
The president’s younger brother served as governor of Florida from 1999-2007 and remains a popular figure in the state. His announcement clears the field for several other potential Republican candidates who had said they wouldn’t challenge him.
Boy, I’m guessing Poppy’s bumming, huh?
Or do you think Jebby’s gonna make a go at Obama in 2012?
Think we’ll see a Bush/Palin GOP ticket?
