Jeb Bush has been described by the Wall Street Journal as “the most qualified candidate to be president. For all the ‘establishment’ criticism, any fair reading of his eight years in office shows it would be hard to design a more successful conservative governorship — lower taxes, limited spending, Medicaid reform, landmark school-choice initiatives. He left office in 2007 with a 60% approval rating.”
One thing he was known for while governor was personally responding to citizens’ emails, thus earning the title “eGovernor.”
After spending years building the Republican party in Florida, serving two terms as a hands-on governor who responded to emails, and who took a young fledgling politician named Marco Rubio under his wing only to see him become an opponent in the 2016 presidential race, Bush continues on the campaign trail.
