COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is scheduled to make a spring visit to swing state Ohio to speak to the state’s Chamber of Commerce.

The business group announced Tuesday the potential Republican presidential candidate will be the keynote speaker for its annual meeting April 14 in downtown Columbus.

Bush has yet to formally launch a campaign, but has been among the most aggressive would-be presidential candidates in recent weeks, having launched a fundraising operation and attended a series of private meetings with donors across the country.

The chamber says tickets to the meeting are $125 per person, which helps to pay for the cost of the event.

In June, Bush headlined a Republican National Committee fundraiser in Cincinnati.
