Fellow thwarted Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney applauded #Jeb Bush’s campaign in a note on Facebook after Bush announced that he was suspending his campaign for the party’s nomination:
Today, Jeb Bush followed his family’s pattern of putting country above himself. His campaign has been about answers to real problems and about policies to strengthen our country. It has been a campaign conducted in the finest tradition of dignity and integrity and Jeb Bush gave it his all: he can have no regrets. I am proud to call him a friend.
