Governor Jeb Bush will host a Town Hall meeting at Franklin Pierce University just one week before the New Hampshire primary. He’ll appear on the Rindge, NH campus Tuesday, February 2 at 10:30 am in Spagnuolo Hall. Governor Bush’s visit marks the seventh presidential candidate to visit Franklin Pierce.
“We are excited to welcome Jeb Bush to Franklin Pierce,” said Andrew Card, President of Franklin Pierce University. “His visit highlights the unique experience that Franklin Pierce students have enjoyed this election cycle, as Governor Bush is the seventh presidential candidate to visit our campus.”
Governor Bush served as the 43rd Governor of Florida from 1999 to 2007. Bush won the Florida governorship in 1998 when he defeated Lieutenant Governor Buddy MacKay with 55 percent of the vote. He then won his reelection bid in 2002 to become Florida's first two-term Republican governor. Bush also served as Florida's Secretary of Commerce from 1986- 1988.
He is the son of former President George H. W. Bush and First Lady Barbara Bush, and the brother of former President George W. Bush.
The Governor’s visit to Franklin Pierce is free and open to the public.
