Bush’s three delegates cost $50 million each

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush’s three delegates at the Republican National Convention cost him and his campaign about $50 million each.

Bush, who ended his presidential campaign in February after a poor showing in the South Carolina primary, had only three delegates vote for him at the Republicans’ nominating convention Tuesday. His campaign and super-PAC spent $46 million for each delegate, according to The Washington Post’s Dave Weigel.

He was a favorite going into the primary season and had substantial financial backing from his family network, but he was unable to muster the enthusiasm his campaign needed.

    This year’s primary turned out to be bad for several people who were considered to be stars in the Republican party. Their chances may be better next time.

    Hillary the Lying Scumbag of America! Will someone please tell anything good she has done?

    Jeb could have been a really good candidate. However he had a very bad atitude and wasn’t very well prepared for the backlash. I hope he continues to pursue his political ambitions in the future. Great family support, but a very bad attitude toward opponets. He should have endorsed Trump and shown up at the Convention to help support Trump and the Republican Party.

      If Jeb Bush had not acted like the American Voters owed him their vote for the Presidential Nominee, I would have considered voting for him, but seeing as how he made such an ASS of HIMSELF I’ll never vote for him not even for Dog Catcher! PS I voted for both Little George & George Sr. MN1 Robert Briggs USN Retired N TN.

        He is establishment, your right this country might be finally waking up and none of these elites will be voted dog catcher. Wouldn’t be great if the roll call of Congress and state government didn’t include family names of any long term, generational members. Maybe with new unknowns this country would get on course to stave off bankruptcy. It’s hard to tell Obama was an unknown look where that got us.

      One does not have to be a poverty parasite to have a sense of entitlement. Jeb has it. Enough of this crap of “keeping it in the family”! They are not Royalty and they are NOT “special”!

      • Worried Vet

        You hit the nail on the head. The family name makes them royalty or so they think. Clinton is the worst. She thinks she is owed being POTUS ever since she was whipped in 08 and forced to play nice. The biased media don’t call her names or say a bad word when in fact she called Obama all kinds of names. People need to wake up the two sets of rules is to obvious. One set for the elite and one for us peons. Isn’t about time we demand equal treatment, instead of fighting about bathrooms. I think this obvious difference should be worth fighting for. The elites are doing their best to have class warfare and bring back a monarch. They have been getting away with it for decades. The founders fought against the rule of the monarch and won. Why is it we are allowing these politicians think they know better than us and to control our lives. I don’t know about anyone else but I have been grown a very long time. I even know how to vote. If we keep allowing them a free hand soon we won’t be able to vote.
