    Jeb Bush wasted no time expressing his gratitude to Bermuda and its reinsurance market during the 62nd General Assembly & Annual Meeting of the World Federation of Exchanges at the Hamilton Princess & Beach Club. [cut] The remarks were made during a wideranging and freewheeling “fireside chat” with the former governor, his son George P. Bush and Thomas Gallagher, chairman and CEO of Miami International Holdings, which owns the Bermuda Stock Exchange. [cut] “I am worried about his [President Biden] age.

    Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis on Tuesday suggested that neither President Joe Biden nor former President Donald Trump were of an appropriate age to lead the nation. Appearing on CBS News, the governor fielded a question as to the ages of Biden, 80, and Trump, 77. Biden is the oldest president in U.S. history while Trump previously held that title. "I think that's absolutely a legitimate concern," the governor said. "The presidency's not a job for someone that's 80 years old, and there's nothing wrong with being 80 obviously. I'm the governor of Florida. I know a lot of people...
  • More cowbell: DeSantis loses ‘Jeb!’ wing of Republican Party

    Uh-oh. Now comes the “Let Ron be Ron” phase of the Incredible Sinking Ron DeSantis campaign. Every failed campaign goes through this phase. It is as sure as admitting you are powerless over alcohol in the Alcoholics Anonymous 12-step program. “Hi. My name is Ron. Let me be Ron.” To casual political observers, this always sounds like a hopeful step on the long path to victory. It always sounds especially hopeful to early supporters of the struggling candidate. I mean, Ron DeSantis is what got Ron DeSantis this far, so why not more Ron DeSantis? You know, more cowbell. But...

    Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is polling in the teens again, approaching his all-time low in the Republican primary field, which originally came on May 13th 2023. That was a full month after the first Trump indictment, which suggests the effect of this second case against the former President may hamper DeSantis for weeks to come. A Morning Consult tracker now sees Trump at 59 percent in the Republican primary, a full 40 points ahead of his nearest competitor, DeSantis (19). The rest of the field lags further behind, with Mike Pence on eight, Tim Scott on four, and the rest...

    Pro-Trump Twitter erupted in pushing a clip of an Oklahoma crowd being prompted by their governor to clap for Ron DeSantis. 'Oklahomans love Ron DeSantis!' Stitt said. While the majority of the crowd was silent, one man yelled out: 'That's right.' The clip is a throwback to a viral moment on the 2016 Republican primary campaign trail when then-candidate Jeb Bush pleaded for a crowd to clap for him during a stump speech in New Hampshire.

    Should U.S. Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, seek re-election next year? The issue divides registered Utah voters, according to an O.H. Predictive Insights poll released earlier this week. While Utahns have a net positive approval rating of the former Massachusetts governor and 2012 Republican presidential nominee, that does not mean most want him to seek re-election. Romney has a 51% approval rating in the state, while 43% disapprove of him. Even so, just 38% of voters said Romney should run again, while 42% said no; 20% said they were unsure. Republicans generally oppose a second Romney term; 36% think he should...

Ron DeSantis (R). “So interesting to watch FoxNews cover the small and unenthusiastic 139 person crowd in Staten Island for DeSantis, but stay as far away as possible from coverage of the thousands of people, many unable to get in, at the Club 47 event in West Palm Beach, Florida,” Trump wrote on his social media platform Truth Social on Tuesday. “I call FoxNews the RINO Network, and their DOWN BIG Ratings accurately reflect the name.

Anchor Dana Bash said, “Are you seriously considering running for president?” Hutchinson said, “I am, but you’ve got to get through, of course, this year, but that’s an option that’s on the table. That’s one of the reasons that I was in New Hampshire. You had Secretary Mayorkas on, and the border security is such an incredible issue. That’s what the kind of thing I’m passionate about.

    WAUKESHA – Of course, he's a Bush Republican. Son of one president and brother of another, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is six years removed from his unsuccessful bid for the presidency. He's watching from afar as his son George P. Bush faces daunting odds in a Republican Party runoff for Texas Attorney General. And if you ask Jeb Bush about the possible end of the Bush dynasty, he says without skipping a beat: "Yeah, that's been a topic for many years." He doesn't focus on the words "Bush Republicans." Instead, he said, there are still voters out there who...
