This is a new one – a presidential candidate will be tailgating at the Tennessee-Georgia game this weekend. Former governor of Florida and GOP presidential hopeful Jeb Bush announced via Twitter that he’ll be in Knoxville on Saturday as part of a series of visits to four different SEC campuses this football season.
“As a successful conservative governor from an SEC state, Jeb’s looking forward to competing in the SEC primary and bringing some fun to the process,” his official website wrote in the announcement. “The primaries may be an entire football season away, but now is the time to grow a grassroots network and organize in key states. To do that, we need the help of supporters like you. “Come meet Jeb on the field, learn how you can get involved and maybe even take a few selfies.”
I’m sure plenty of Vol fans will be wanting to ask him about the tough issues such as why Tennessee keeps blowing leads and if the Vols can turn it around in 2015.
