Jeb Bush visits Bluefield College

Posted:

BLUEFIELD Va. (WVVA) - A member of a powerful American political family discussed economic growth in Bluefield, Va., Tuesday.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush was the keynote speaker for the Hugh I. Shott Jr. Lecture Series.

Bush told the crowd on the Bluefield College campus that the path toward sustained economic growth needs to include a patriotic energy policy, transformed education system and wholesome family life.

Bush -- whose name has been mentioned as a potential presidential candidate -- did not rule out a 2016 run.

Bush was originally scheduled to speak in Bluefield last fall. That visit was disrupted by Superstorm Sandy.

Bush is the brother and son of former Presidents George W. Bush and George H.W. Bush, respectively.
