Jeb Bush's camp on Monday pounced on the revelation that Hillary Clinton used only personal e-mail as secretary of state.

“Hillary Clinton should release her e-mails. Hopefully she hasn’t already destroyed them,” Bush spokeswoman Kristy Campbell told Politico. “Governor Bush believes transparency is a critical part of public service and of governing.”

Clinton's avoidance of an official e-mail account while serving as President Obama's top diplomat from 2009 to 2013 “may have violated federal requirements that officials’ correspondence be retained as part of the agency’s record,” according to the New York Times, which first reported the news Monday. Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill “said she has been complying with the 'letter and spirit of the rules,'” the newspaper reported.

The revelation is an opportunity for Bush, a likely Republican presidential candidate, to contrast himself with Clinton, the presumed Democratic frontrunner, on the issue of transparency. Bush, a famously active e-mailer as governor of Florida, in December said he intended to release about 250,000 messages from his time as governor, to accompany an e-book.
