Following comments by former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush against the Supreme Court’s landmark 2010 ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, FreedomWorks National Director of Grassroots Noah Wall responded:
“Jeb Bush has tried to portray himself as a conservative to identify with grassroots activists, but no real conservative would oppose the right to political free speech. Citizens United was a victory for free speech. Bush is putting himself firmly in the corner of Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid, who want to gut the First Amendment and make it more difficult for Americans to engage in the political process.”
