in 2017/Top Headlines by

Although members of the Jeb Bush campaign team continue to speak confidently about their candidate’s chances, the former Florida governor continues to place fourth or fifth in recent national and statewide polls.

One state that Bush is working harder on winning than any other candidate in the Republican presidential campaign is his home state of Florida, where he’s made several appearances this year.

The latest will be Monday, November 2, at the Tampa Garden Club in the Palma Ceia area of South Tampa (2629 Bayshore Boulevard) beginning at 10:30 a.m.
