NEW YORK, April 07. /ITAR-TASS/. Former Governor of Florida Jeb Bush said he did not rule out running for presidency in 2016. Jeb Bush is the brother of former US President George W. Bush.
In an interview with Fox News Channel, Jeb Bush said he would decide by the end of 2014 whether he would run for President. “I just don’t want to go through that until the right time,” Bush added.
Jeb Bush, 61, enjoys wide support in the Republican Party. However, his views on certain issues, in particular on immigration policies, differ from the opinion of the majority of Republicans. Bush supports easing US immigration policy. He says that illegal immigrants come to the US out of despair because they cannot feed their families in their native countries.
Jeb Bush had served as Governor of Florida from 1999 to 2007. He was one of the most popular Governors in the history of the state. If he decides to run for presidency in 2016, he will get a chance to continue the family tradition: his father George H. W. Bush was the 41st US President, and his brother George W. Bush – the 43rd US President.
Experts say that the heritage of Jeb’s brother may do him a disservice. George W. Bush left his post in January 2009 and became one of the least popular presidents in the US history.
The most probable presidential candidates from the Democratic Party are former State Secretary Hillary Clinton and incumbent Vice-President Joseph Biden. They have not yet announced their intentions to run for presidency in 2016.
