The New York Times this morning has an interesting piece on Jeb Bush this morning, noting that the popular former Florida governor has resisted endorsing a candidate thus far in the heated Florida primary race.
According to the article, Romney offered to make Jeb Bush an honorary co-chairman, a similar position held by New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, but he refused. The article also reports that he advised Romney to tone it down on immigration.
Mr. Bush has made clear in television interviews and in conversations with friends that he is troubled by the sharpening tenor of the race, particularly on immigration. He voiced his concern directly to Mr. Romney, two people close to him said, urging him to moderate his oratory and views to avoid a collapse of support among Hispanic voters in the general election.
