Watch Matt Welch Talk Jeb Bush and Ben Carson on MSNBC's All in with Chris Hayes at 8:30 pm ET


Not only has Jeb Bush trailed Ben Carson in every national GOP presidential poll over the past seven weeks, now it comes out that the giftedly-handed neurosurgeon is raising more money than the would-be third Bush president, $20 million to $13 million in the third quarter. As a result, the former Florida governor has cut his expensive activities way back, while the soft-spoken Carson has…uh, suspended his campaign to go on yet another book tour?

I will be talking about this—likely making the counter-intuitive point that Carson's ha-suspension is much ado about nothing—tonight at around 8:30 p.m. on MSNBC's All in with Chris Hayes.
