Jeb Bush is among six possible GOP candidates who will speak to a meeting this month of the powerful conservative group, the Club for Growth, The Washington Post reports.
The former Florida governor joins Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal who will all address the Feb. 26-28 private meeting, held at Palm Beach's Breakers Hotel, the Post said.
Their speeches offer conservatives an early glimpse at their potential — and vast differences — as one could potentially lead Republicans to a presidential victory in 2016, the Post noted.
The Club for Growth,
which boasts 100,000 members, has been active in supporting candidates who support its limited-government, free-enterprise agenda. It offers scorecards on the economic voting records of members of Congress.
It has previously supported Rubio, Cruz and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, and has warned former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee that it will be active, should he make a White House run in 2016, in making sure "that Republican primary voters thoroughly examine his exceptionally poor record of raising taxes and spending as governor," The Wall Street Journal said.
