A visit by leading Republican candidates to Sun City Center on Monday, Oct. 27, was a chance to shake some friendly hands and maybe win some votes, but there was also talk of a possible run for president by former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush.
Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam, State Attorney General Pam Bondi and County Commissioner Al Higginbotham all turned out for a forum hosted by the local Republican Club of Sun City Center.
The story was ignited over the weekend when Jeb Bush’s son said he thought there was a good chance his father would try to win the GOP nomination.
Asked what his father was thinking about a run for the presidency, George P. Bush told ABC News: “I think it’s, it’s more than likely that he’s giving this a serious thought and moving, and moving forward.” Pressed on whether it was likely he would run, the younger Bush said that “he’ll run.”
