Jeb Bush is focusing the first round of his political action committee's donations on candidates and state Republican organizations in early-voting presidential states and general election swing states, leaving little doubt the former Florida governor is planning to seek the 2016 GOP nomination.
Bush announced Friday that the group he formed in December is contributing $122,800, more than half of which is going to candidates and state Republican parties in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada. The four states are scheduled to hold the nation's first GOP nominating contests in February 2016.
The rest of the money Bush has been raising aggressively this year is going to his home state's Republican Party and a mix of younger and diverse candidates and candidates from swing-voting Ohio, North Carolina and Virginia.
