The conventional wisdom among some political observers is that whatever is happening this summer in U.S. politics, next year’s presidential contest will inevitably come down to a Jeb v. Hillary contest.
Whether that will happen will be known soon enough.
In the interim, Jeb Bush‘s campaign team continues to look past Donald Trump and aim their energy at Hillary Clinton in a new Web ad released Thursday morning called Transparency vs. Secrecy.
In it, the Bush team uses cable and broadcast news footage of anchors and commentators contrasting Bush’s accessibility vs. Clinton’s “secrecy issues,” certainly as it pertains to the ongoing controversy – and now investigation – of the email she sent and received through her own email account and server.
Footage shows Bush at the Iowa state fair giving his email address – [email protected] – and showing reporters Al Hunt of The Wall Street Journal and Michael Crowley at POLITICO praising Bush’s accessibility, with other commentators taking Clinton to task for a lack of transparency.
