The Primaries

The Republican Primary

Republican contenders:

Florida Governor Jeb Bush
Secretary of State Tom Ridge of Pennsylvania
U.S. Senator Wayne Allard of Colorado
Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich of Georgia
U.S. Senator Lincoln Chafee of Rhode Island
Former Ambassador Alan Keyes of Maryland

Jeb Bush still led in polling and was continually the frontrunner of the bunch but after a surprise second place in the Iowa Caucus by Wayne Allard and a third place finish in New Hampshire, soon many thought that this could be the end of Jeb Bush'es momentum.

After reaffirming that he was the frontrunner and winning in a string of primaries and quickly becoming the presumptive nominee after beating out the insurgent campaign from Newt Gingrich and Bushes major opponent Tom Ridge.
