The man, he said, “was a co-chairman for Ted Cruz, and he came adult to me and said: ‘I’ve altered my mind after a debate. I’m for you.’ ”

“I do that for each convert,” Mr. Bush pronounced with a laugh, branch to a organisation of reporters following him. “Anytime we guys wish to try a chest bump, I’m all in.”

No one, as of press time, had taken him adult on a offer.
