CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) - Many of the republicans who are considering the 2016 presidential race are openly laying the foundations of potential campaigns.
What's former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush doing? He's busy tending to a growing personal business empire.
It's a break in style from recent candidates who distanced themselves from the sometimes politically risky business of making money before running.
Bush is chairman of a Florida-based Private Equity and Business Advisory Group. And he's a managing partner of at least eight other separate companies that dabble in ventures ranging from privatized emergency response to real estate to driverless cars.
That's what state and federal records show.
If he runs, he'll face pressure to disclose years of personal tax returns and details about his private business activity.
