Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush returns to the Palmetto State today amid chatter about his growing interest in becoming the third member of his family to occupy the White House.
Bush will give the winter commencement address at the University of South Carolina. This weekend, speculation about the Republican's desires to run in 2016 was written up by The New York Times, The Washington Post and the Associated Press.
He becomes the second presumed presidential prospect to address graduating USC students this year. Vice President Joe Biden donned the black robe at Colonial Life Arena in May.
