Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush might not have accomplished his goal of becoming president, but one of his senior advisers plans to fulfill her own lifelong dream.
Sally Bradshaw, one of Bush’s closest advisers and a force behind his presidential campaign, plans to open an independent bookstore this fall. She tweeted that she’s opening Midtown Reader in Tallahassee, Florida.
“Opening a new chapter! Follow @midtownreader to learn more,” Bradshaw tweeted over the weekend, with a link to the store’s Twitter account.
Bradshaw and Bush go way back. She served as his campaign manager when Bush ran unsuccessfully for Florida governor in the early 1990s and again four years later, when he won.
She then became his chief of staff from 1999 to 2001. She also served in George H.W. Bush’s White House and as a consultant to other Republican organizations.
