Jeb Bush calls Iowa GOP chair about 2016

The Des Moines Register is reporting that Jeb Bush called Iowa Republican Party chairman Jeff Kaufmann this morning to chat about the presidential campaign. Said Kaufmann, "there was a resolved in his voice."

From the Register:

When Jeb Bush telephoned Iowa's Republican party chairman today, he repeatedly said he's not a candidate, he's just exploring a bid for president in 2016.

"But there was a resolve in his voice," Chairman Jeff Kaufmann told The Des Moines Register this afternoon. "What I heard is a man that's ready to come out and tackle the Hawkeye state."

Kaufmann said he thinks Bush lined up the telephone conversation because Kaufmann had commented recently in the media that only two major candidates from the GOP potential 2016 lineup had yet to contact him: Bush, a former governor of Florida, and Mitt Romney, the party's 2012 nominee.

The phone call lasted 20 minutes.
