Jeb Bush is having a tough time in his race for the Republican presidential nomination because "it's the not the right cycle" for the former Florida governor, former White House spokesman Ari Fleischer said Tuesday.
"Jeb's problem this year is the Republican Party wants somebody who can bang on the take and change things," Fleischer, who served under former President George W. Bush, told Brooke Baldwin on CNN.
"It's not the right cycle for Jeb in that case.
"Jeb comes from the much more thoughtful school of Republican politics," he said.
He also hopes that former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg enters the race because "it will really throw the election to the Republicans.
"He will steal so much more from a Democratic base than he will from a Republican base. He's just culturally a Northeast liberal.
"That's going to really hurt him in much of the rest of the country," Fleischer said.
