Jeb Bush Officially Launches 2016 Campaign

June 15, 2015

Jeb Bush became the 15th person to formally launch a 2016 presidential campaign today, with an announcement at Miami Dade College. The former Florida governor is the 11th Republican in the race; with 4 so far on the Democratic side.

While Bush is polling relatively well, he has not broken out from the pack in a crowded Republican field. He trails likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton if we look at the national polls or the electoral map based on polls.

In somewhat related news, Donald Trump is expected to make his 2016 plans known tomorrow.
