Likely Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush was set for a pair of high-priced Seattle-area fundraisers Monday for his Right to Rise super PAC.
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush hasn’t declared as an official candidate for president in 2016, but he’s courting wealthy, Seattle-area donors for his Right To Rise super PAC.
Bush was scheduled to attend a $12,500 per person round-table Monday afternoon at the Premiere on Pine building, a luxury high-rise apartment complex near the Paramount Theater, with amenities including a dog lounge and top-floor private theater.
Afterward, Bush planned a $1,250 per person reception in Medina, according to the fundraiser invitation. No public appearances were announced and organizers didn’t respond to questions about the events.
Bush’s hosts for the fundraisers include Clyde Holland, developer of the Premiere on Pine building (and a major donor to initiative guru Tim Eyman’s latest anti-tax endeavor), cellular magnates Craig and Susan McCaw, and apartment developer Hossein Khorram.
Bush, the son of former President George H.W. Bush and brother of former President George W. Bush is one of at least a dozen potential GOP candidates for president. In all likelihood they’ll be fighting for the right to face Hillary Clinton, the odds-on favorite as the Democratic nominee, and, like Bush, a part of an American political dynasty.
