In an attempt to blunt Mr. Rubio’s appeal against a Democratic nominee, Mr. [Mike] Murphy [the head of "Right to Rise," Bush's Super-PAC] recently showed some Republicans a video portraying Mr. Rubio as too extreme on abortion. A longtime opponent of abortion rights, Mr. Rubio said in a debate in August that he had “never advocated” laws that would allow abortions, even in cases of rape or incest.
Mr. Murphy has privately said to several people that Right to Rise would be ready to devote up to $20 million to fighting Mr. Rubio, according to several people told of the conversations.I was starting to feel a measure of sympathy for Jeb Bush, believing him basically a decent man out of his depth and hopelessly out of touch with the times.
Apparently, I misjudged the man, wrongfully assuming he had a functioning soul. Won't make that mistake twice.
