Jeb Bush has decided not to run for the Senate in Florida next year, according to former state House Speaker Marco Rubio.
The official news, delivered to me via Corcoran & Associates’ email:
Jeb Bush: “After thoughtful consideration, I’ve decided not to run for the United States Senate in 2010. While the opportunity to serve my state and country during these turbulent and dynamic times is compelling, now is not the right time to return to elected office.
“In the coming months and years, I hope to play a constructive role in the future of the Republican Party, advocating ideas and policies that solve the pressing problems of our day. We must rebuild the Party by focusing on the common purposes and core conservative principles that unite us all — limited government, a strong national defense and safe homeland, and the protection of liberty tempered by personal responsibility.”
