Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has told The Weekly Standard that he wants Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan to enter the GOP race for president.
Bush is quoted by the Standard saying:
“Paul Ryan would be a formidable candidate. I admire his substance and energy. Win or lose, he would force the race to be about sustained, job-creating economic growth and the real policies that can achieve it.”
Bush joins a growing chorus of Republicans who would like to see Ryan jump into what has become a very crowded field of Republican candidates.
The Weekly Standard also has this interesting tidbit:
Ryan is in Colorado vacationing with his family this week. Three sources close to Ryan tell THE WEEKLY STANDARD that his wife, Jana, is “on board” with a presidential bid. “That is a very big deal,” says one Ryan confidant. “Not that she’s enthusiastic, but she understands and she’s with him on it.”
