Bush’s Three Delegates Cost $50 Million Each
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush had a pathetic showing in this year’s primary cycle. It has been revealed that his three delegates cost his campaign $50 million each.
The Hill reports:
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.
Donald Trump‘s attacks on Bush as “low energy” resonated with GOP voters and hurt the former Florida governor, who struggled to compete with the business mogul and GOP presidential nominee.
Bush has said he won’t vote for either Trump or presumptive Democratic presidential nomineeHillary Clinton and has no plans to attend the Republican convention.
