While Jeb Bush was speaking at a campaign event in New Hampshire Tuesday, the lights literally went out.

A video tweeted by ABC reporter Candace Smith showed Bush standing in a darkened room, only illuminated by the TV lights.
Bush paced the stage as the ceiling lights came back on.
Smith reported the lights went out three times during the event “apparently due to electrical issues.”
She said he suggested someone was leaning on the light switch.
“That’s leadership!” he exclaimed when they came back on.
It wasn’t the only awkward moment for Bush Tuesday.
At an event earlier in the day, he told a younger voter he wanted “to be your first.”
"I want to be your first," Bush awkwardly tells a college kid who said he will be a first-time voter.
