Bush said he misjudged the intensity of anger among Republican voters before launching his White House campaign, calling the country in 2016 one that is “dramatically different” than in past elections. Yet the former Florida governor insists he’s still a viable candidate for the Republican presidential nomination, and one who has broadened his mission to include defending conservativism from GOP front-runner Donald Trump.

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) – Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is returning to his native state to teach a 10-day elective course on governmental leadership at Texas A&M University.

The university announced Friday that Bush’s class will begin Jan. 6 and conclude before the regular spring semester begins.

He’s joining the faculty at the university’s Bush School of Government and Public Service, named for Jeb’s father, former President George H.W. Bush.

Jeb graduated from the University of Texas. He grew up in Midland, along with his brother George W. Bush, who was Texas governor before leaving for the White House in 2000.

Jeb Bush raised an impressive war chest but dropped out of the Republican presidential primary after the South Carolina primary in February.

His son, George P. Bush, was elected Texas land commissioner in 2014.
