Jeb Bush will stay neutral in Florida primary



jeb_bush.jpgJeb Bush will not endorse a candidate before Florida's presidential primary, his spokeswoman tells the Buzz tonight.

"He is staying neutral," Jaryn Emhof said.

After Gingrich's win in South Carolina tonight there was a flurry of Twitter speculation that Bush would endorse Romney. CNN's John King said he had sources telling him Romney had it "wrapped up."

Not true, says Emhof.

For the record, Sen. Marco Rubio has also said he will stay on the sidelines until a nominee is picked.
