Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush says he is exploring the possibility of running for president, essentially freezing big money donors as they wait to see if the latest Bush wishes to brave the increasingly conservative Republican primary process. Bush appears to want to join his brother, George W., and father, George H.W., as part of the Bush presidency tradition — if the Republican primary electorate will allow it.

He's further tried to distance himself from the issue by saying legislation from "gangs" of … [Read more...] about Jeb Bush: Marco Rubio needs to show leadership’ on immigration
