New Jeb Bush Ad Touts Conservatism and Gun Record

Jeb Bush is going up with a new web ad in South Carolina touting his conservatism, particularly his record on guns and his pro-life stance. 

“Who is Jeb Bush relative to all of the other quote unquote conservatives?” a male narrator asks at the start of the ad. 

“I am the most proven conservative with the most proven conservative record,” Bush says in the ad, in which features footage of Bush delivering speeches on his record supporting pro-gun legislation, and discussing his pro-life position. 

The ad is a swipe at John Kasich, whom Bush has criticized as insufficiently conservative for expanding Medicaid in Ohio, and Donald Trum​p, whose conservative bona fides Bush has repeatedly questioned. 

The ad begins running tomorrow. The buy is five figures; the campaign declined to share the specific price tag.  

Bush reinvigorated his campaign with a fourth place finish in New Hampshire, when he came in ahead of Marco Rubio. His campaign is going all out in South Carolina, where his brother, former president George W. Bush, remains popular and where they see an opportunity to put him solidly back in contention.

Late Campaign Stops Don’t Seem to Do Much

Growing up in New Jersey, we called nights like tonight – where there were expectations for hooliganism -- vandalism, breaking windows, and perhaps even arson, “Mischief Night.” In Detroit, they called it “Devil’s Night.” In 2020, Americans just call it “Friday.” On the menu today: wondering ...

Searching for a Sign

I’ve been waiting for almost six months to see a Biden-Harris yard sign in my neighborhood. Finally one -- just one -- appeared about two weeks ago. It is large and proud. The homeowners even equipped it with a spotlight, so that it is visible at night. I’m surprised, because liberal political yard signs ... Read More
