Bush Builds His Foundation's War Chest

As expected, Gov. Jeb Bush is using his last legislative session in office to raise five and six figure donations for his Foundation for Florida's Future from businesses and individuals with an interest in state affairs and contracts.

Even after he leaves office, he will still be able to use his name and connections to pull in large donations, but it is unlikely he will be able to pull in $500,000 contributions the way he can as a sitting governor.

Wisely for a man with probably presidential ambitions, he is building a war chest, which, while it cannot be used explicitly for a political campaign, can be used to keep a reasonably high profile and establish his policy credentials in key states.
