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. As a result of the big-money ploy, the thinking went, W’s brother would be seen as the inevitable nominee. (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. And, according to this story in the Washington Post, it all began to unravel inside a Hyatt hotel at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.
