For half a sentence, Bush is an official 2016 candidate

Author: Associated Press

RENO, Nev. (AP) – Over and over again, Jeb Bush says he’s still thinking about whether to run for president.

But for half a sentence Wednesday, Bush let on it’s a decision he’s already made. And he’s in the race for the White House.

Talking with reporters after a town hall in Reno, Nevada, the former Florida governor said, “I’m running for president in 2016 and the focus is going to be about how we, if I run, how do you create high sustained economic growth.”

Bush noted several times in the same conversation he is still thinking about whether to run and caught himself before ending the sentence in which he said he was running by adding that caveat.

Asked about the slip, Bush’s team merely referred to his comments.
