Jeb Bush Endorses Tommy Thompson

May 7, 2012

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is backing Republican Tommy Thompson in the Wisconsin Senate race, giving him a jolt of conservative credibility as he faces a tough Republican primary.

"Washington needs the kind of shake up and fundamental reforms Tommy Thompson can deliver. Tommy has my full support and I'm happy to endorse his campaign," said Bush in a statement released to Hotline On Call. "Tommy's conservative reforms became models for the nation and governors all across the country. No one is better prepared to reform our entitlement programs, repeal and replace Obamacare, balance the budget and create new jobs."

Bush's reputation as a reformer and his high standing in the current Republican Party will help bolster Thompson's arguments touting his own reform-minded record as governor. In the fundraising department, where Thompson's numbers have been underwhelming, Bush's deep national connections should also help.
