George W. Bush may not be interested in campaigning this cycle, but his brother seems to be. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) is in Louisville, Ky., Monday for a private fundraiser for Senate candidate Rand Paul (R).
Democratic Senate candidate Jack Conway’s camp hit Paul for bringing in Bush, but interestingly made no mention of the “Bush agenda,” a popular Democratic epithet, in its attack. Conway’s camp instead sent out a release that contained “a list of things both Jeb and Paul still need to learn about the Commonwealth.” The list included issues such as agriculture and drug enforcement policy, food safety and combating discrimination.
Bush is becoming increasingly active this cycle. Last week, he endorsed New York House candidate Chris Cox (R).
