While most politicians would close up shop after spending $14 million to rack up a minuscule 2.8% at the Iowa caucus, Jeb Bush isn’t letting that stop him.
He recently rolled into New Hampshire try and spur on his flagging campaign and inspire the youth to support him. According to an account by the Washington Post‘s Ed O’Keefe, things got awkward when Jeb addressed a young voter who’d never voted before.
“I want to be your first,” the GOP candidate said.
"I want to be your first," Bush awkwardly tells a college kid who said he will be a first-time voter.

Despite finishing a distant sixth and paying an average of nearly $3,000 a vote to ultimately fail to persuade the people of Iowa to care about his campaign, Jeb Bush isn’t slowing down. Unlike Rand Paul and Mike Huckabee, who have admitted defeat and suspended their campaigns after polling low at the Iowa Caucus, Jeb Bush says that he is not dropping out of the race.
