Schuette Endorses Jeb Bush for President

Schuette will chair Bush’s Michigan campaign.

Michigan Attorney Bill Schuette is endorsing Jeb Bush for president in 2016.

He announced on Wednesday that he’ll serve as chair for Bush’s campaign organization in Michigan.

There’s a hunger out there for Republicans to take back the White House and put the country on the right track,” Schuette told reporters on a conference call.

“Jeb Bush, in my mind, has the experience, the skill set, the record, the conservative record, and the disposition to serve the presidency in a distinguished way.”

Schuette has been a longtime friend and supporter of the Bush family. Many political onlookers expect Schuette to launch a bid for governor in 2018.

Other members of the Michigan for Jeb campaign include, U.S. Congressman David Trott, former U.S. Senator Spencer Abraham, former Michigan Secretary of State and U.S. Senate candidate Terri Lynn Land, and Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson.
