Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is taking a "very serious look" at running for president in 2016, CNN said, citing reports from Republican fundraisers.

CNN's John King said on "Inside Politics" Sunday that until now, most people thought he was not planning to launch a bid, but his contacts are now suggesting otherwise.

"I spoke to several Republican fundraisers this week who got phone calls from Jeb Bush, the former Florida governor, who hasn't said he is going to run, but is starting to ask some serious questions," King said. "So people think that at least he's giving it a very serious look."

Bush said at the end of January that he was not actively considering a presidential run and would defer any decision until later in the year, leaving the door open to speculation about his intentions.

A Washington Post-ABC News poll last month put Bush in second place among six possible 2016 GOP contenders, and The Washington Post said Bush could be a spoiler or savior for the Republican Party should he choose to run.
