Fact Check: Jeb Bush Claimed His Book Only Costs $2.99 — He Was Off by Only $9

A claim made by Jeb Bush Thursday night at the Fox News GOP debate did not hold up to the facts.

When discussing immigration, the former Florida governor claimed that a book he wrote on the subject, “Immigration Wars,” was available online for just a few dollars.

“You can get it at Amazon for $2.99, it’s not a best-seller,” Bush said.

But a search on the e-commerce website proved the claim false. On Amazon, the least expensive copy of the book sold for $11 — not $2.99 as Bush had said.

It should be noted, however, that a cheaper copy was available if the individual enrolled in the website’s Audible.com service.
