Jeb's Foundation Spends More Than $100k on Media Production - Our 100th Post!

Gov. Jeb Bush's Foundation for Florida's Future is continuing to ramp up its operations by paying political advertising firm, the Victory group, $126,750 for "media production." The Foundation paid the political consultants more than $20,000 back in February.

While organizations like the Foundation for America's Future are required to file their disbursements, Bush's foundation is actually listing them on their website. The question is - why?

No one doubts that Bush will not be satisfied to a former governor and the brother of the President, but it is generally agreed that he will not run before 2012 or 2016, though lately he has been letting rumors about joining a presidential ticket as the vice-presidential ticket circulate.

Is Jeb telegraphing his ambitions to potential presidential candidates by keeping his political spending in the public eye?

On a related note, Bush's rumored presidential partner, Senator John McCain, has endorsed Crist in the gubernatorial primary.
