Let's Get Real.
Move over George W and George HW Bush. Make way for the new Bush candidate for presidency. Jeb Bush, 61, announced he is “actively” exploring running for president.
According to Buzzfeed, Jeb Bush announced in a recent Facebook post that he was thinking about running for President. If it is Facebook official, it must be true.
Jeb is the brother of the former President George W. Bush. He also happens to be the son of former President George H.W. Bush. It would seem that presidential candidates run in the family. Jeb Bush has served as the governor of Florida for two terms. He hopes his success at this level will propel him into the presidency in 2016.
According to ABC News, Jeb made the decision over the Thanksgiving holiday. He talked it over with his family, who were all very supportive.
Jeb Bush has been focusing on issues such as education and immigration. His announcement has put pressure on other perspective Republican candidates, as most on Skout feel like he has some type of edge. It is anticipated there may be five candidates who plan to run for the presidency.
The announcement of Jeb Bush’s plan to run for presidency may come as a delight for some, and a concern for others. What lies ahead remains to be seen for the 2016 election.
