Jeb Bush hosting fundraiser for LePage

KENNEBUNKPORT (AP) — Maine's self-proclaimed "blue-collar governor" is headed to genteel Kennebunkport for a fundraiser.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is headlining Tuesday's event to raise money for Republican Gov. Paul LePage's re-election campaign. The fundraiser is being held at the waterfront Nonantum Resort in the coastal town where Bush's father, former President George H.W. Bush, has a seaside retreat at Walker's Point.

Former U.S. Sen. Olympia Snowe along with current Sen. Susan Collins are co-hosts of the event along with Linda Bean, former Maine treasurer Bruce Poliquin and businessman Les Otten.

A private session and photo opportunity costs $2,000 per person or $3,000 per couple. LePage will report his fundraising totals to election officials later this month.

Stranger than fiction

If the Tea Party follows Sarah Palin's lead and breaks off from the Republican party to form a third party, " The Freedom Party", then Lepage could end up campaigning against Jeb Bush and Collins. Now wouldn't that be something.

I am curious?????????

Is Jeb Bush fully aware of what this guy has done to the State of Maine. His family owns property here. I guess the Republicans need to stick together, who else do they have???????????
