Bush Stumps For Romney With Stop In Melbourne
By Matt O'Hern // November 3, 2012
BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, along with Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll and Florida state agriculture commissioner Adam Putnam, fired up the Gov. Mitt Romney forces in Brevard with a stop in Melbourne at the Romney campaign headquarters.
Bush, who served as the 43rd Governor of Florida from 1999 to 2007 and is traveling the state in the Romney campaign bus, made four stops on Saturday across Florida. Bush said the president’s redistribution of wealth in an attempt to solve society’s problems will fail.
Recent polling numbers show Gov.Romney maintaining a slight edge over President Barack Obama in Florida. Bush said that Obama is dividing the nation instead of focusing on bipartisan cooperation to solve our economic problem.
“President Obama’s strategy is to blame others – starting with my brother,” said Bush said.
