In response to Jeb Bush’s comments in South Carolina last night, DNC Director of African American Media Michael Tyler issued the following statement:
“Jeb Bush either has no idea what he’s talking about or he’s a cynical politician appealing to the ugliest elements of the Republican Party. Either way he is unfit to lead this country. Sadly Jeb Bush’s comments reflect a Republican Party that, while touting policies that benefit a select few at the very top, is falling over itself to alienate more and more Americans every single day. In just the last few weeks we’ve witnessed Republican presidential candidates insult African Americans, Muslims, Hispanics, Asian Americans and women.
“It’s an odd electoral strategy in a multicultural society.”
