Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is pushing ahead with his presidential exploration —
unveiling 60 fundraisers for his leadership PAC, including a Feb. 4 speech in Detroit that'll be his first in a series that will take him across the country.
One person at an afternoon event announcing the upcoming events told the Washington Examiner
that Bush talked about how the expected campaign of Democrat Hillary Clinton would "be a campaign of the past dating back to what happened in the 1990s."
His candidacy, Bush countered, would be all about the future, and focus on positive immigration reform, among other issues, the source said.
"His whole message is going to be that you’ve got to lift people up," the attendee told the newspaper. "You can’t have a successful campaign that is focused on people who are doing well economically."
His first speech stressing that theme will be given to the Detroit Economic Club Feb. 4, the Tampa Bay Times reports.
The Florida gathering was organized by Dirk Van Dongen, president of the National Association of Wholesaler-Distributors, and brought together some 40 GOP operatives, many with ties to the Bush family political network, the Washington Examiner reports.
