Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush said he’s releasing some 250,000 e-mails from his time as governor as part of an e-book early next year — adding fuel to speculation that he’s preparing for a possible run for the White House.

“Part of serving or running, both of them, is transparency, to be totally transparent,” Mr. Bush told WPLG Local 10. “So I’ll let people make up their mind. There’s some funny ones. There’s some sad ones. There’s some serious ones.”

Mr. Bush said it has been “kind of fun to go back and think about this and remind myself that if you run with big ideas, and then you’re true to those ideas and get a chance to serve and implement them and do it with passion and conviction, you can move the needle.”

“And that’s what we need right now in America,” he said.

Mr. Bush’s positions on issues like immigration and Common Core education standards are at odds with the views of many in the conservative base, but he has been performing well in early public polling on the potential 2016 GOP presidential primary contenders.
