The long-awaited announcement was Monday afternoon when former Florida Governor Jeb Bush made it official: He’s in! He is now official a candidate for president of the United States. I live-Facebooked the 1.5-hour announcement that included entertainment, testimonials from friends and co-workers in Florida’s government, and the introduction of his mother, former First Lady Barbara Bush, as well as his wife and children.
If you are a doubter — his name, his family, he’s too moderate, he’s too conservative, he’s too fill-in-the-blank — take a few minutes and read about him in his own words (see Meet Jeb on his official website). I will be writing more about Jeb over the next months, rebutting the mistruths, half-truths, and simple misunderstandings about his stand on immigration, Common Core, and other issues.
