Jeb Bush is making an overture to Iowa.
The former Florida governor will host a fundraiser in Coral Gables for Gov. Terry Branstad on May 22, the Iowan's campaign aides confirmed to The Des Moines Register.
It likely will be viewed as a way for Bush to make his Iowa debut for the 2016 presidential cycle - without coming to Iowa. ...
Branstad campaign manager Jake Ketzner told the Register that Branstad admires the work Bush did to manage Florida's finances while focusing on improving the state's economy.
"We are thankful a national leader like Gov. Jeb Bush is hosting this fundraiser for our campaign," Ketzner said. "Given Gov. Bush's popularity and unmatched record as governor of Florida, we believe this will be a very successful fundraiser and the governor is excited to attend."
