Jeb Bush is doing what ten other Republicans have already done -- take the 2016 plunge.

FOX News Radio's Eben Brown reports:

Jeb Bush's announcement today is hardly a surprise. The former Florida governor's political committee has been in operation since December.

But, even despite not officially being a candidate, Bush has been included in all polling and prognosticating. He's also hardly shied away from spotlights, popping up at candidate forums and fundraisers.  

Even earlier today , fellow Florida Republican and presidential candidate Marco Rubio publicly welcomed him to the race, with Bush tweeting in response "see you out there".
