Jeb Bush, in swing-state Ohio speech: 'I'm my own person'

The Associated Press

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) GOP White House prospect Jeb Bush has kicked off a speech to business leaders in swing-state Ohio with a series of personal recollections, saying he's his "own person."

The former Florida governor took his all-but-declared 2016 presidential bid to the battleground state Tuesday. He delivered an address to the Ohio Chamber of Commerce's sold-out annual meeting and planned a fundraiser later in Cincinnati.

Bush says he's blessed to be the son and brother of presidents, but he says, "I'm my own person. I've lived my own life." He talked of falling in love with his wife and having a new grandchild, Jack, born Monday.

Bush acknowledged some of his ideas are "apparently unorthodox" but said he'll stay true to himself and not hide his views if he runs for president.
