Jeb Bush Insists Campaign 'Not On Life Support'

After clashing with Marco Rubio in Wednesday night’s third Republican debate, Jeb Bush says his campaign is “doing fine,” though supporters and donors are concerned.

Leaked internal documents show the Bush campaign recently counted only 1,281 confirmed supporters in Iowa. Republican campaign officials will be meeting this weekend to try to gain more control of the next debate’s format.

A New York Times editorial is calling on Chris Christie to leave the race. And A Des Moines Register editorial argues that the House panel on Benghazi “wasted millions” of taxpayer dollars because no new information about the deadly 2012 attack on the diplomatic compound in Libya has been unearthed for over a year.

Kay Henderson of Radio Iowa and Sergio Bustos of the Associated Press discuss these stories with Here & Now’s Robin Young, in our weekly look at the race for 2016.
