Potential presidential candidate Jeb Bush is touting his conservative values in a new video released Friday.
The video is likely targeted at Republican voters in the 2016 presidential primaries, especially conservatives who are concerned by his position on immigration reform and the Common Core education standards, according to The Daily Caller.
But the video came out the same day that the Des Moines Register in Iowa published
a front page column expressing doubt about his conservative values, with a headline saying, "Jeb Bush: Barely a Republican, or 'conservative hero?'"
The video, simply titled "Conservative," consists entirely of footage from Bush’s speech last week at the Conservative Political Action Conference outside Washington.
Story continues below video.
The video includes clips of the former Florida governor calling on the government to "control the border," while also admitting that he supports a "path to legal status" for illegal immigrants.
The footage also shows Bush backing Common Core, while pointing out that in his view "the federal government has no role in the creation of standards."
In the video from his CPAC speech, he says, "This nation needs to start growing at a far faster rate than we are growing today."
Bush also made a point of including in the video his CPAC statement, "I’m pro-life."
