About Jeb Bush
Born and raised in Houston, Texas, John Ellis Bush (who prefers to go by his initials, JEB) studied and earned a
degree in Latin American Affairs before beginning his career in politics. He became Florida's Secretary of
Commerce in 1986, resigning two years later to support his father's (former President George Herbert Walker
Bush) bid for the white house. After trying unsuccessfully to become Governor of Florida in 1994, Bush won the
office in '98, beginning what would become the first two-term Republican gubernatorial administration in
Florida's history. He announced his 2016 presidential candidacy on June 15, 2015, in Miami, Florida.
Jeb Bush has a solid conservative record on a number of issues from his term as Florida's Governor. He supports
the death penalty, having held office during 21 executions and declining to commute any of the sentences. He
reduced taxes while in office, as well as cut the size of state government, vetoed over $2 billion in new
spending, and lowered funding for public projects including libraries and homework assistance programs.
Republican presidential hopeful Jeb Bush voiced a two-part response to Donald Trump's vulgar insult of Hillary Clinton on Tuesday: He said it was another sign Trump is unsuited for the presidency and argued Clinton will use it to cast herself as a "victim."
Jeb Bush did not know that his campaign was doing its due diligence to possibly break from the GOP pledge to support the party’s eventual nominee in the wake of Donald Trump’s repeated threats to run as a third-party candidate, the GOP candidate said in an interview late Thursday.
Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush said "anybody is better than Hillary Clinton" to be president - but that sentiment apparently just barely applies to his fellow candidate, businessman Donald Trump.
we should do nothing because the cost of dealing with global warming is far higher than the potential damage. We should perhaps sign on to some international agreements, but make only minimal financial commitments for now.
Belief in God is what America was founded upon, so religious organizations, or praying in school, does not violate the separation of church and state. Religious institutions should be involved in welfare or education.
