BuzzFeed News: Super PAC backing Jeb Bush has collected so much cash to give opponents 'heart attacks'
From BuzzFeed News:
The super PAC tied to Republican presidential candidate and former governor of Florida Jeb Bush has raised $17 million so far in the New York-area alone, according to a conference call between the super PAC officials and donors on Wednesday.
Mike Murphy, the longtime Jeb Bush confidant and consultant who is heading the Right to Rise super PAC, told a group of donors on a conference call Wednesday that they had so far raised $17 million in the Tri-State area to support Bush’s campaign for the presidency.
Telling the donors on the call they were “killers” who he was going to “set loose,” Murphy said the number the SuperPAC would be filing by the next July reporting deadline would give opponents “heart attacks” and discourage their rivals’ donors from opening their wallets.
