— Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush isn’t ruling out a possible presidential run in 2016.

Bush, who was attending the inauguration Tuesday of new Gov. Rick Scott, repeated his stance that he’s positively not running for president in 2012. When asked about 2016, Bush said he would never say never, but reiterated that 2012 is out.

Bush, the son of former President George H.W. Bush and younger brother of former President George W. Bush, received the loudest ovation from a predominantly Republican audience when introduced at the inaugural.

Jeb Bush was Florida’s governor from 1999 to 2007. He has remained in the private sector since leaving office and been highly visible on behalf of Republican causes nationally.
