Source: Jeb Bush not buy­ing Mar­lins

Cape Breton Post - - Sports -

MI­AMI – Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is no longer in­ter­ested in buy­ing the Mi­ami Mar­lins and has ended his pur­suit of the team, a per­son close to the ne­go­ti­a­tions said Tues­day.

The per­son con­firmed Bush’s de­ci­sion to The As­so­ci­ated Press on con­di­tion of anonymity be­cause the Mar­lins have not com­mented on the sta­tus of sales talks. Bush led a group that in­cluded former New York Yan­kees cap­tain Derek Jeter, who may still explore a bid with other investors.

The per­son con­firm­ing Bush’s de­ci­sion didn’t give a rea­son for it.

With Bush’s with­drawal, the front-run­ner to buy the Mar­lins be­comes busi­ness­man Tagg Rom­ney, son of former Repub­li­can pres­i­den­tial nom­i­nee Mitt Rom­ney. He leads a group that in­cludes Hall of Fame pitcher Tom Glavine.
