Susan Collins Campaigns for Jeb Bush in New Hampshire

U.S. Sen. Susan Collins of Maine spent part of the Wednesday morning campaigning for Jeb Bush in neighboring New Hampshire.

Collins says she is sticking with Bush despite his disappointing showing in the polls so far.

"I know that Jeb has not done as well as I would have liked, but this is a long ways from over," she says.

Collins says not a single ballot has been cast or a caucus held to elect the delegates to the national nominating convention this summer in Cleveland. She says what is important to her is Bush's proven track record on many major issues that other candidates do not have.

"Jeb Bush has the temperament, the experience and the qualifications that we need in a president during these very difficult times," she says.
