Scarborough: Christie's "Ship Has Sailed" & "Nobody's going, 'Oh, we got to get Jeb" [View all]

Big-money GOP donors are reluctantly leaning toward former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush for president in 2016, said talk show host Joe Scarborough.

"The whispers are out there. You hear it among top (Republican National Committee) donors. There is not an excitement. I'll be really honest with you. Nobody's going, 'Oh, we got to get Jeb,'" Scarborough said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" Monday.

Donors are eying Bush because they see him as the only nominee who could beat presumptive Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, Scarborough maintained. He said contenders like Rand Paul and Ted Cruz weren't considered viable against the former secretary of state.


"I haven't talked to one that thinks Chris Christie can [win]. You know what? In the eyes of the big Republican donors, that ship has sailed," he said.
