Jeb Bush Tells How His Wife, Columba, Signed Off On Presidential Candidacy

Why Columba is "all in" for Jeb Bush's presidential run.

“She told me that not allowing me to pursue this mission would be like telling a musician you can't play music,” Bush told ABC News “World News Tonight” anchor David Muir in an exclusive interview in Iowa today.

The former Florida governor revealed that the couple talked about him running for president and then prayed on it, until Columba was finally “all in.”

“She's not a political wife, which I love,” Bush said of his wife of 41 years. “I like to go home and be with her and be as we've been.”

“I don't have high expectations for her to have a 5 point plan on policy,” Bush said. “She's campaigning and she's showing that she can do it and she's really good at it.”

“People are drawn towards her. She's such a loving person but she's not a political spouse,” Bush said. “She’s my soulmate for 41 years.”
