Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush is expected to join the crowded 2016 Republican field on June 15, while former Texas Governor Rick Perry will announce today with a launch event scheduled for late morning outside Dallas.
While polling thus far has not identified a breakout candidate, Bush has been running near the top, while Perry has seen support in the low single digits. There have been several national polls of the Republican field this week.
