Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush intends to use his fame and family name to land the deal to buy the Miami Marlins baseball team.
Originally, Bush planned to partner with New York Yankees all-star Derek Jeter to buy the Marlins. The two placed a $1.3 billion bid for the Florida-based baseball team. However, the partnership ended after Jeter indicated he wanted to control both the business and baseball operations. Reportedly, there were other issues as well. It is said the two had a hard time at raising the money.
The split didn’t sideline Bush. He is now in a new partnership with Tagg Romney, most famous for being the oldest son of Mitt Romney. The third partner is Wayne Rothbaum, Founder of Quogue Capital.
The three men are now bidding approximately $1.1 billion for the team, with most of the capital coming from Romney and Rothbaum.
The three men still face one hurdle. Derrick Jeter is still in the hunt for buying the team.
