Jeb Bush to hit Florida campaign trail

Greg Nash

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R), a possible 2016 presidential candidate, will campaign for current Gov. Rick Scott (R-Fla.) on Friday, the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Bush has been quiet compared to potential rivals for the Republican nomination, such as New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, who have both made recent high-profile trips to Iowa.

A Bloomberg report last month that Bush had joined with a team of bankers to create a private equity firm also raised questions about whether Bush would run. 

But he will be out in his home state on Friday, campaigning for Scott, who is locked in a tough battle for reelection with another former Florida governor, Charlie Crist (D). 

A Scott campaign spokeswoman told the Tampa newspaper that Bush and Scott would visit "a business in Homestead to highlight proposals to keep Florida working."
