Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush received a standing ovation from donors in New York after he announced that he was thinking about running for president.
Bush indicated his intentions during a Catholic school benefit in New York on Wednesday that was closed to the press.
“I’m thinking about running for president,” Bush said, according to Fox News reporter Cristina Corbin, who spoke to an event attendee.
The attendee said that Bush’s comment was met with a standing ovation, prompting Bush to say, “Can someone call my mother so she can hear this?”
In April 2013, Bush’s mother Barbara Bush said, “We’ve had enough Bushes,” when asked if she wanted Jeb Bush to run for president.
