Jeb Bush is the son of former President George H. W. Bush and the younger brother of another former POTUS, George W. Bush. He is also the former Governor of Florida (1999-2007) and it is his first time running for President.

Age: 62 (born February 11, 1953)

Campaign: Jeb! 2016

Main political views: Is a typical Republican, conservative, business-friendly and gains his support from the Republican establishment.

Chances of winning: Jeb Bush is considered one of the favorites to gain the Republican nomination for president. Although, his brother is not currently popular among the public, Jeb is still considered to be amidst those with a realistic chance of winning the nomination in the large Republican field.

Update: Jeb Bush suspended his campaign following the South Carolina Primary. After two disappointing results from Iowa and New Hampshire, the at-one-time favorite got fewer than 8% of the votes in a state where he looked very strong on paper. This caused the highest spending candidate to withdraw from the race after never really gaining any momentum, in part, due to his uncharismatic personality.
