How Dallas Played a Starring Role in Jeb Bush’s ‘Disjointed’ Presidential Campaign

Meetings at D/FW Airport Hyatt called awkward, ungainly.

For many months, the main strategy of Republican presidential hopeful Jeb Bush was to pile up so much loot from donors—the initial prediction was for $100 million in 180 days—that potential rivals would run away from the race with their tails between their legs.

(Among Jeb’s local supporters is oil-and-gas billionaire Trevor Rees-Jones, who serves on Bush’s Texas Leadership Committee.) But now, for a variety of reasons, Jeb’s grand plan really hasn’t worked out.
