Jeb Bush Suffers Three Defeats at the Hands of Republican Voters

The election sucked all of the oxygen out of the air for the last three months. And from me, too.

2. Allow me the opportunity to gloat: So how’s that Chiefs for Change thing going, Jeb? Just a few short months after Gerard Robinson resigned in disgrace in Florida, one of Bush’s hand-picked stars suffered defeat in a red
