Jeb Bush to speak at Univ of South Carolina in Dec

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush will speak at next month’s winter graduation at the University of South Carolina in his second high-profile visit to the early presidential primary state in two months.

Bush will give the commencement address on Dec. 15.

Jeb Bush will be the third member of his family to address University of South Carolina graduates. His father, President George H.W. Bush, spoke while in office in May 1990, and his brother, George W. Bush, spoke during his presidency in May 2003.

Jeb Bush came to South Carolina in October to campaign for fellow Republican Gov. Nikki Haley. That was Bush’s first official trip to South Carolina since 2012. The state is critical in the 2016 presidential race because it is the first primary in the South.
