THE CAPE AND THE IS­LANDS. “As Trop­ic­al Storm Ar­thur ap­proached Cape Cod from Flor­ida,” former Flor­ida Gov. Jeb Bush (R), “ar­rived in Sand­wich to raise money for”¦Baker in the pri­vacy of the gated Ridge Club” on Cape Cod on Wed­nes­day. “Neither Bush, who is re­garded as a po­ten­tial fron­trun­ner for the GOP pres­id­en­tial nom­in­a­tion in 2016, nor Baker, the party’s pre­sumptive nom­in­ee in the gov­ernor’s race, made them­selves avail­able for com­ment after the Ridge Club fun­draiser, which came be­fore a cock­tail re­cep­tion and din­ner held” on Nan­tuck­et.
