Jeb Bush Greets Supporters In Reno

Julia Ritchey

Republican presidential hopeful Jeb Bush stopped by Reno Wednesday, his fourth visit to the Silver State. Reno Public Radio's Julia Ritchey reports.

A friendly crowd packed into a conference room at the Hyatt near the Reno-Tahoe International Airport for a quick meet-and-greet with Bush.

"Now is the time to start fixing things rather than yappin' about 'em," Bush told supporters.

The former Florida governor was joined on stage by Nevada Sen. Dean Heller and Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch. Both endorsed Bush ahead of the rally.

Bush says if elected, economic growth would be his highest priority.

"We don't have a problem of income inequality, we have a problem of social and income mobility," he says.

Locals Jackie and Charles Oakes say they were impressed with Bush, but haven't made a final decision yet on who to support.

"I actually want to hear what all the candidates have to say, but I was really hoping to hear what he had to say on the Iran deal," says Jackie.

From here, Bush headed to Las Vegas for a town hall event.
