Former Florida governor and Republican leader Jeb Bush, who is being seen as a front-runner among the party’s presidential prospects, arrived in the Florida capital Tallahassee on Tuesday in an attempt to refurbish his credentials as he eyes a White House bid in 2016.
In an effort to burnish his charm as the former state governor, Bush hosted a lavish luncheon at USD 1,000-per-person at a hotel blocks from the mansion of the governor.
The Republican presidential prospect raised money and showcased several education reforms on Tuesday while releasing his thousands of emails that were written between 1999 and 2007 when he was holding the post of California governor.
Bush left no stone unturned to establish connection with the constituents at a personal level by releasing the first chapter of a campaign-style book.
“Everyone could email me. So they did,” he writes.
Bush’s trip underscores his strength in the largest swing state of America, which serves very crucial for the Republican Party to claim victory in 2016.
According to Bush and his advisers, the release of large numbers of his emailed communications from his period as governor will help the party in wooing more voters and show the inner side of Bush who has the skill to easily connect with the people in their daily life, who write their concerns to him and he also loves to respond to the issues.
According to the reports, Bush is also expected to talk about the education policy during a school reform conference, which was hosted by his Foundation for Florida’s Future.
Bush also made promotions for publicly funded charter schools, which are usually run by private corporations. He also promised to institute a voucher program that would allow the students in failing public schools to get them enrolled in private and religious schools at the expense of taxpayer.
