Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush made a morning stop at the Iowa State Fair Friday.
He touched on a wide-range of issues before a large crowd of several hundred at the Des Moines Register soapbox.
“I believe we’re on the verge of the greatest time to be alive if we’re strong, rebuild our military, show support for our veterans, bring back competency in government, and grow our economy at a far faster rate,” he says.
The brother and son of presidents, Bush says he’s tired of the divide in American politics.
“The next president is going to have to unite this country and I’m going to campaign in a way that sends the signal enough of this divide, we need to fix things in Washington, D.C.,”he says.
To this end, he says he’s working to attract Hispanics, African-Americans and young people to his campaign.
