FILE - In this June 19, 2015, file photo, Republican presidential candidate former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush speaks in Washington. Big-time donors to a nonprofit educational group founded by Jeb Bush, disclosed publicly by The Associated Press for the first time, highlight the intersection between Bush’s roles in the worlds of business, policy and politics years before he considered running for president. After leaving the Florida governor’s office in 2007, Bush formed the Foundation for Excellence in Education, whose mission is “to build an American education system that equips every child to achieve their God-given potential.” With Bush serving as president, the group attracted $46 million from donors through 2014.
