Jeb Bush announces his run for the Presidency.
On October 2, 2014, George W. Bush said that his brother “wants to be President”.
On December 16, 2014, Bush announced via Facebook that he would be “actively exploring” a 2016 run to become President of the United States and at the end of the year resigned several corporate boards.
In February 2015, Bush released several thousand emails from his time as governor online. Most of the emails are in the public record under Florida’s Sunshine Laws. However, Bush created controversy by releasing some emails that included some personal details such as social security numbers, names and addresses, as well as the contents of the messages. Bush’s campaign team subsequently redacted the personal information.
