Jeb Bush 13 by Daniel Anna Lee

Anna Lee of Northern Virginia would be a key conservative operative for a Bush for President campaign.

It appeared to be a more enthusiastic crowd on Friday than usual at CPAC for conservatives seeking the right Presidential candidate. Without question and in some cases a surprise, former Governor Jeb Bush wowed ’em. In the words of well-known Virginia conservative operative Anna Lee, Bush was “very Presidential and articulate.” It was his day in the sun.

Lee was part of the Who’s Who of Virginia supporters that included Marta Saltus and Manny Rosales, whose main focus was to support Bush and encourage him to simply, “Run.” Victor Cabral, noted Virginia attorney and husband of Anna Escobedo Cabral, who served as the nation’s 42nd Treasurer of the United States under George W. Bush, served as Virginia point man for the private Bush event. He was instrumental in assembling over 1,000 supporters from across the nation to a reception with Bush after a remarkable stage performance in front of a packed CPAC crowd.

UPDATE: Goodlatte requests holds meeting with Shenandoah Valley tea party leadership 7 days after Eric Cantor’s loss

???????????????????????????????By Lynn R. Mitchell

UPDATE: Congressman Goodlatte’s office responded to this post: “Congressman Goodlatte requested this meeting with SVTPP in May, well before the June 10th primary, as part of his continued outreach to groups throughout the Sixth District. The headline of your post is quite misleading, making it look like the meeting was requested in response to Eric Cantor’s loss, which is not the case.”
