Jeb Bush said Wednesday he’s “thinking about running for president,” in his most direct statement yet about a possible 2016 run.
The former Florida governor spoke at a Catholic school benefit in New York Wednesday morning. He previously has said he’ll make a decision on whether to run for president before the end of this year, making clear that he was considering the possibility.
But his comments on Wednesday appeared to be more direct. Asked what his “immediate plans” were, he said, according to an attendee: “I’m thinking about running for president.”
