GOP Presidential Prospects Jeb Bush and Mitt Romney to Meet in Utah

Bush spokeswoman confirms he will meet Romney.

“This meeting has been on the books for some time,” Bush spokeswoman Kristy Campbell told ABC News in a statement. "Gov. Bush is very much looking forward to the opportunity to catch up and visit with Gov. Romney. He respects him very much."

At the time, Bush wouldn’t confirm the reported meeting, citing his “respect” for Romney. He added jokingly that he was headed to Utah to ski.

Last month, Bush announced he would "actively explore the possibility of running for president of the United States,” and several weeks later he launched a political action committee to fund travel related to his possible run, as well as a place for supportive donors to place funds ahead of an official run.
