The former Florida governor's supporters shouted down his hecklers at his much anticipated appearance at the Conservative Political Action Conference.
With Senate passage of a $40 billion funding bill for the Department of Homeland Security, all eyes turn to House Speaker John Boehner. The Senate's bill does not contain language blocking President Obama's executive actions on immigration, which many House conservatives have insisted upon.
The Conservative Political Action Conference has been meeting just outside Washington, D.C., this week. A parade of presidential hopefuls addressed the annual event for grassroots activists. There were many conservative favorites, including Senator Ted Cruz and Rand Paul, and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker. But perhaps the biggest test at CPAC was for Jeb Bush, who's long been greeted with skepticism by conservative activists.
Attendees at the Conservative Political Action Conference say they want the next president to focus on bipartisanship, faith, security and lower taxes.
The Senate approved a bill that funded Homeland Security through Sept. 30. The Republican leadership in the House decided to move forward with a more limited bill, but that failed.
