Vastly Changed Electoral System Presents Risks and Opportunities for Jeb Bush

Description

Former Florida governor Jeb Bush on Tuesday stepped into a system of presidential politics that differs dramatically from the one his father and brother used to win office, potentially diminishing Bush's dynastic advantages but also offering him a possible path to victory through the mine-strewn Republican primary. Jeb's brother George W. Bush ran for president when the Internet was still new and email was exotic. He ran for reelection in 2004, the same year that Howard Dean became the first presidential candidate to raise significant amounts of money online. Small dollar donations and Super PACs are the dual forces that a potential Bush candidacy must now confront. They will diminish the advantages he would have had under the old presidential system, in which his brother and father’s network of wealthy patrons would have given him access to sum few others could hope to raise. http://news.yahoo.com/vastly-changed-electoral-system-presents-risks-and-rewards-for-jeb-bush-235324681.html http://www.wochit.com
