Jeb Bush will release emails from his time as Fla. governor

250,000 emails will be featured in new e-book

CORAL GABLES, Fla. - In what might be an indication of a prospective presidential run, Jeb Bush said he would release 250,000 emails from his time as Florida's governor.

Bush made the announcement Saturday during an exclusive interview with Local 10 News.

The emails will be released as part of an e-book early next year, Bush said.

"I was digital before digital was cool, I guess," Bush said. "Now it's like commonplace."

This comes amid speculation that Bush is preparing to announce plans to run for president in 2016.

"Part of serving or running, both of them, is transparency, to be totally transparent," Bush said. "So I'll let people make up their mind. There's some funny ones. There's some sad ones. There's some serious ones."

Bush said he would make up his mind on a 2016 bid for the Republican presidential nomination "in short order," most likely after the New Year.

He also spoke about his departure from the Republican Party leadership on issues like immigration reform and Common Core.

The entire interview will be broadcast Sunday on "This Week In South Florida" at 11:30 a.m.
