The national finance chairman for Mitt Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign on Tuesday praised former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush’s stance on immigration, saying the party should consider following his lead if it hopes to win back the White House in 2016.
Spencer Zwick, one of the more sought-after GOP agents, said the donor community is going to get behind candidates that, like Mr. Bush, actively embrace immigration reform.
“If someone wants to be serious about running for president, they need to be in a similar place,” Mr. Zwick said, alluding to Mr. Bush.
The remarks came during a conference call with GOP donors organized by Partnership for a New American Economy, which was moderated by Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform.
