Jeb Bush skipping Iowa Straw Poll: report

Republican Jeb Bush will not participate in this year's Iowa Straw Poll, the folksy informal survey that carries outsized weight in determining US presidential frontrunners, the state's main newspaper reportsRepublican Jeb Bush will not participate in this year’s Iowa Straw Poll, the folksy informal survey that carries outsized weight in determining US presidential frontrunners, the state’s main newspaper reported Tuesday. The former Florida governor and heir to the Bush dynasty will skip the quirky if established fixture on the US political calendar, opting instead to attend a competing event in Atlanta, Georgia. Iowa’s Republican officials, who have fought to maintain the straw poll’s relevance amid criticism, expressed disappointment in Bush’s decision. “We hope governor Bush rethinks his decision and realizes that grass-roots will only grow in Iowa if he waters them,” Iowa GOP chairman Jeff Kaufmann told the Des Moines Register.
