JUDD'S CHOICE:

Judd Gregg sizes up Jeb Bush (John DiStaso on Dec 17, 2014, NH Journal)

"We are going to have an extremely strong field this time around," Gregg said, "as opposed to last time, when we had only one candidate qualified to be President and the others were writing their next book.
 
"This is a deep and talented field," he said. "There is a first tier and a second tier and undoubtedly, Governor Bush is in the top tier.
 
"I would not call him a prohibitive favorite, but I would call him a substantive favorite," Gregg said, also naming Mitt Romney, should he decide to run, and New Jersey Gov. Christie in that category. But he said, "It's going to be a wide open field." Gregg said he did not hear from Bush prior to his announcement on Tuesday that he "actively explore" running for President.
 
"I do tend to think that the next nominee will come from a governorship rather than Congress," Gregg said, "because Congress has been somewhat dysfunctional and I believe the American people are tired of the dysfunction."
