Did former George W. Bush Administration communications director turned host of The View Nicolle Wallace just announce that Jeb Bush is running for president in 2016?
“I’m so excited that Jeb Bush is running,” Wallace said in an interview with The Insider’s Debbie Matenopoulos on Thursday. “He really sort of shaped my views of what a conservative can be and is, and the problems they can solve and how they can solve them differently.”
“I hope he’s successful. I hope he wins the nomination. I hope he wins the White House. But I’m going to be cheering for him from here,” she added, noting that she “would do anything” for the Bush family — except go back to working in the White House.
Jeb Bush has made no secret of his plans to explore a run for president in 2016 and is among the frontrunners in many early polls. But he has not officially announced his candidacy yet and probably imagined it happening in a slightly different way.
