"He has a lot of personal experience with that issue, and that's why he's probably a little bit different than some of the other Republican presidential candidates," he said.

The professor is the author of a book about Bush, "Conservative Hurricane: How Jeb Bush Remade Florida," which was released in October.

"He had a conservative record here as governor," Corrigan said. "He's going to have to talk about that more because . . . the base is really looking for a strong conservative voice.

"I don't think Jeb Bush is going to win over that room, but there is space within the Republican Party for a center right candidate with a conservative past," he said.

"And what he's doing now is really talking in more moderate tones," he added.
