WASHINGTON, Jan. 6 (UPI) -- Former Florida governor Jeb Bush launched two political action committees Tuesday, taking him one step closer to a bid for the GOP presidential nomination.
Bush launched the Right To Rise PAC with two videos -- in English and Spanish -- on his Facebook page.. In the short video, Bush said Right to Rise is "a PAC to support candidates that believe in conservative principles to allow all Americans to rise up." A Web site for the Right to Rise Super Pac was also up on Tuesday.
"At the Right to Rise PAC, we will support candidates who want to restore the promise of America with a positive, conservative vision of reform and renewal. We believe the income gap is real, but that only conservative principles can solve it by removing the barriers to upward mobility," the Right to Rise site said.
Bush will be attending a fundraising event in Greenwich, Conn. on Wednesday.
