New York Magazine talks with Bush who says a growing Hispanic population in Texas could cost the GOP a reliable stronghold.
"It's a math question," he tells me. "Four years from now, Texas is going to be a so-called blue state. Imagine Texas as a blue state, how hard it would be to carry the presidency or gain control of the Senate."
Imagine. Four years from now.
Once again, it is impossible to ignore Jeb Bush describing a problem he's uniquely suited to solve for his party: a popular two-time governor of a Hispanic-heavy state, with a record of improving education for minorities, fluent in Spanish, married to a Latina, and father to two Hispanic sons, George P. Bush and Jeb Jr. By Jeb Bush's own calculus, Jeb Bush would make a great presidential candidate.
