Jeb Bush tells Carolina crowd that he rooted for Denver because Peyton wrote him a check

LATEST FROM THE BUZZER

At a campaign stop in Mount Pleasant, S.C., on Wednesday, Republican presidential candidate Jeb! Bush told the assembled crowd that on Super Bowl Sunday, he was rooting for Denver to beat the Carolina Panthers.

Although he was surrounded by supporters (video above), it took some cojones for Jeb to disclose the reason for his rooting interest — because Peyton wrote a $2,700 check to Bush’s campaign last August.
