Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush left his position on the board of an online education company to focus on a possible bid for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination.
The Washington Post confirmed with Bush’s office that he resigned from the board of Academic Partnerships.
In recent weeks, Bush quit his job as adviser to British bank Barclays and gave up his seat on the board of real estate investment firm Rayonier.
He is also said to be evaluating his position as senior partner of Jeb Bush & Associates, a consulting firm.
Jeb Bush, 61, is the son and younger brother, respectively, of former Presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush. He was governor of Florida from 1999 to 2007.
On Dec. 16, Jeb Bush announced via Facebook his decision to “actively explore” a run for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination.
A recent poll shows Republicans favor Bush over other potential candidates such as New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky.
On the Democratic side, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton leads all potential contenders in every survey. Clinton, 67, has said she will decide in the first half of 2015 whether to make another run for the White House. EFE
