Jeb Bush team gets to work in Iowa

DES MOINES - "The only hangup I have with Jeb Bush is he's already had a father and brother as president. It's the family business. It's enough of a problem that I'm not even going to look at him."

That's Jonn Nebbe, 44, who was at the Iowa State Fair on Wednesday to see Rick Perry take on the Des Moines Register soapbox.

The dynasty problem is not hard to find in Iowa, nor are disappoinitng poll numbers. But Jeb Bush's team is kicking into gear. Bush spent more than four hours at the fair on Friday, and not far away his office in West Des Moines is up and running, already hosting phone banking and organizing Saturday door knocking sessions.

On Thursday, Bush's son, George P. Bush, will attend the opening of the east Iowa headquarters in Cedar Rapids.

Marco Rubio was supposed to open his HQ in Ankeny today but canceled, citing his kids' first day of school. A visit to the office this afternoon revealed a work in progress.
