Report: Jeb Bush to launch 2016 campaign on June 15
Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush teased on his twitter account today a “major announcement” happening on June 15, 2015. We can only surmise this will be the date on which Bush will transition from exploratory mode, into an official 2016 presidential campaign.
Report from Buzzfeed:
It’s almost official, another Bush will be making a run for the White House. Jeb, who announced about six months ago that he was exploring a presidential run, will make his official announcement in less than two weeks.
The former Florida governor, who is also the son of former president George H.W. Bush and younger brother to former president George W. Bush, will make the announcement on June 15, 2015, according to a tweet he sent out Thursday morning.
According to Bush’s website jebannouncement.com, the big reveal will happen at 1 p.m. at Miami Dade College Kendall Campus.

Bush has been “exploring” a run for the past six months while raising millions of dollars for his Right to Rise Political Action Committee. This arrangement has generated some questions about the line Bush is walking to circumvent campaign finance law and raise money for his PAC while not yet acting as an official candidate.
