Jeb Bush’s Latest Effort to Court Evangelical Voters Misfires

Wednesday, May 6, 2015 | Tag Cloud

(Worthy News)-- Jeb Bush's latest effort to court evangelical voters boomeranged when a Christian radio network boss challenged him for hiring two political aides who support same-sex marriage, and the former Florida governor conceded that he couldn't identify any "genuine" conservatives in his inner circle, the Washington Times reported.

The details of Mr. Bush’s private phone call in mid-April with Rich Bott, whose religious radio network of 100 stations stretches from California to Tennessee within potential reach of 51 million listeners, were confirmed to The Washington Times by Mr. Bott and top aides to Mr. Bush.

It is the latest bellwether of the former Florida governor's struggles with certain constituencies inside the Republican Party's conservative base who are wary of his potential positioning on marriage, education, immigration and spending heading into his bid for the White House.
