On NBC’s Today Show, former Florida governor and brother to George W. Bush, Jeb Bush said that he wouldn’t rule out running for president in 2016.
The Republican politician told The Today Show’s Matt Lauer, “I won’t [rule it out] but I’m not going to declare today either. I have a voice, I want to share my beliefs about how the conservative movement and the Republican party can regain its footing, because we’ve lost our way.”
Bush said he believed the problems associated with the recent budget sequestration were exaggerated and said it is merely a temporary issue.
Bush said to The Today Show, “The president kind of led the charge to say that widows and orphans were going to be out on the street, and so when it didn’t happen, he actually himself kind of stepped back on Friday and said it wasn’t going to happen that way.”
According to TheHill.com, Bush will be speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference in mid-March.
