Republicans Hail Uber in Bid for Tech Cred

Republican White House hopefuls looking to boost their tech cred are racing to hitch a ride on Uber — while Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton is keeping a cautious distance. Jeb Bush gave the popular ride-hailing service its latest GOP plug on Monday, announcing plans to request an Uber this week during a visit to San Francisco, where he’ll speak about the power of disruptive technology. Marco Rubio, Rand Paul and Ted Cruz also have heaped praise on the company, which is battling local authorities and taxi commissions across the country.
