A new name has emerged in the bidding to own the MLB's Miami Marlins. CNBC star, Camping World CEO and Miami native Marcus Lemonis has joined former Florida governor Jeb Bush's group that's trying to buy the team.
Lemonis, host of the CNBC show "The Profit," said he was recruited by Bush, who recently united with Tagg Romney, the oldest son of former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, and Wayne Rothbaum, an investment firm executive. Lemonis confirmed his new partnership on Twitter.
Bush teamed up with Romney's group after he pulled out of Derek Jeter's group, who is also vying to own the Marlins, according to a story by NBC Miami.
