Jeb Bush camp says it got big debate boost online


Time will tell how voters and political donors respond to Jeb Bush's sustained jabs against Donald Trump in Tuesday's Republican presidential debate. But the former Florida governor's campaign has revealed another metric: interest in Bush's website.

The campaign wouldn't say how many people visited after the debate, or how many people signed up for email alerts or made online financial contributions.

It did, however, say it received a record number of visitors -- up 106 percent compared to the last debate over a month ago. Online donations were up 30 percent compared to the last debate, and email sign ups increased by a whopping 419 percent, spokeswoman Allie Brandenburger said.
