Jeb Bush has been lagging in the polls, trailing Donald Trump by a wide margin nationally and in early states.

Nevertheless, he’s still considered one of the most likely eventual nominees by pundits and political experts. One reason why is his Super PAC, Right To Rise, which has raised over $100 million, dwarfing his competitors.

But having money is one thing. Spending it wisely is another.

Yesterday, Right To Rise announced they were sending a mailer to 86,000 Iowa households touting Bush’s candidacy.


A closer examination, however, reveals one of Jeb’s hands appears black.

Jeb currently trails Trump in Iowa by 14.3 points, according to the Real Clear Politics average.

In a tweet, Right To Rise's Paul Lindsay details why Jeb's hand appears black on the flier. In the original image, a woman standing next to him casts a dark shadow on his hand. The image was then further altered and transposed onto a stock photo of Iowa.
