Bush Proves (Again) That Money Doesn’t Buy Elections

Alexandria, VA –  The Center for Competitive Politics (CCP), America’s largest nonprofit working to promote and defend First Amendment rights to free political speech, assembly, and petition, released the following statement today in response to former Florida Governor Jeb Bush’s decision to drop out of the race for President:

“Money can’t buy love, or votes,” said CCP President David Keating. “Has there ever been a better example than Jeb Bush of the fact that voters decide the outcome of elections, not money? From Blair Hull and John Corzine to Linda McMahon and Meg Whitman, Jeb Bush joins the litany of failed candidates with big campaign warchests who ultimately lost or dropped out. While money is critical for getting a message out, it can’t convince people to cast a vote, make Americans like a candidate, or fix systemic issues within a campaign.”

The Center for Competitive Politics is now the Institute for Free Speech.
