    Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush speaks during a campaign rally at the Veterans Memorial Leisure Services Center on September 17, 2015 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

    Jeb Bush and his network are trying to reassure donors to stick with the GOP presidential candidate after a lackluster debate performance Wednesday, NBC News reported.

    Bush held a conference call with top donors on Thursday with promises to improve.

    He emphasized his commitment to primary states like New Hampshire and rolled out a high-profile endorsement from former Sen. Judd Gregg, he said on the call.

    Bush told NBC News his plans to become a better candidate include doing what other candidates do, “which is rudely interrupt, not answer the questions that are asked.”
