Jeb Bush thanks alumni for support, “faithfulness to our cause”

Jeb Bush notepadJeb Bush is thanking campaign alumni, telling his backers in an email that he appreciated their support.

“You were all there for me from the beginning — making calls, raising funds, knocking doors in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina, and providing encouragement to fight on,” said Bush in an email to alumni. “I know many of you did this at your own expense and on your own personal time. Thank you for your faithfulness to our cause and your support of me.”

The former Florida governor suspended his campaign Saturday. Once considered by many to be the GOP frontrunner, Bush failed to gain steam in early primary states. He decided to bow out of the presidential race after he finishing fourth in the South Carolina primary.

In an update sent to alumni, Bush said he promised to run the campaign “in a way that would bring people together — lifting folks up, not tearing them down.”

Bush said he couldn’t be “more grateful to have had the opportunity to run for President.”

“I met so many amazing people across our great land — moms, dads, entrepreneurs, students, veterans and active duty military, older voters and younger voters — all of whom share our love of this great nation and our belief that America’s future can be restored with the right leadership,” he said.

Bush urged alumni to “stay involved on behalf of conservative candidates and causes, mentor a student who needs your help or get involved with charitable causes in your community.”

“Together we can make a huge difference in the lives of people who need it,” he said.
