CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush will visit New Hampshire the day after he plans to announce his 2016 presidential campaign.

Bush’s campaign aides say he’ll announce his run for the Republican nomination on June 15 at Miami Dade College in Florida. His website says he will travel to New Hampshire the next morning for an event at the Adams Memorial Opera House in Derry.

Bush’s visit will come a day after Democratic front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton will be in New Hampshire - home of the first presidential primary.

Bush jump-started the Republican presidential contest in December when he announced he was “exploring” a presidential campaign. He’ll join a crowded field of at least 11 major Republicans vying for the party’s nomination.
