Conservatives may protest Bush at CPAC

Jeb BushBy The Iowa Statesman


According to a report from The Washington Times, a group of conservatives is planning to stage a protest “walk-out” when former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush takes the stage later today at the Conservative Political Action Conference.

William Temple, a member of the Golden Isle Tea Party, told The Washington Times that the party doesn’t need another Bush in office, and said that the party should listen to the grass-roots activists that helped fuel their gains in the 2014 election.

“We are going to get up en masse, and we are going to walk out on him,” the 64-year-old said. “We are not going to interrupt anyone’s speech, but we are all going to exercise our right to [use] the bathroom at the same time.”
