Jeb Bush is one of the more notable 2016 Republican presidential candidates and has been making his way around the college football world in tailgating appearances. He was scheduled to make an appearance this week at the Alabama vs. LSU game, but has decided to cancel the trip.
According to a report form College Football Talk, Bush decided to cancel attending the game to pursue more campaigning as he continues to fall behind Donald Trump and Ben Carson in the race.
The presidential race in the Republican party has gotten very heated with so many candidates vying for the one position. Bush has also fallen behind both Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz in the race.
Switching his attention to his political career is likely the right move for Bush. He could likely swing a few voters at the Alabama vs. LSU game by tailgating with them, but there is much more to do than attend a football game. Bush has to figure out a game plan to have any chance at making a comeback in the Republican race.
Bush does still have one more game left on his tailgating schedule this season, which is the Egg Bowl game between Ole Miss and Mississippi State later this year.
Whether or not he’ll stick with that one and attend isn’t known yet, but Campus Sports will have you updated about Bush’s potential college football tailgating parties.
