MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) – Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush is being joined on the campaign trail by Former House Majority Leader Eric Cantor.
Cantor introduced Bush Wednesday to a large crowd on the campus of Colby-Sawyer College in New London, N.H.
Cantor praised Bush for his record as Florida’s governor, commending his education reforms and his emergency response efforts during several hurricanes.
Cantor says Bush sticks “to the principles of limited government” and “is the one who will never let you down.”
Bush is banking on voters in New Hampshire to lift his struggling campaign.
Ohio Gov. John Kasich is expressing openness to some type of campaign finance reform that favors small dollar donations.
Kasich says in Durham, New Hampshire, that it “an’t that great” for one person to be able to contribute $10 million to support a specific candidate. Donors can contribute unlimited amounts of money to super PACs, a system that’s helped some candidates stay in the presidential contest even as their campaign fundraising lags.
Kasich himself is the beneficiary of such a super PAC, called New Day for America.
Kasich also says it’s imperative that Congress “end gerrymandering.”
