WASHINGTON — Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is reiterating that he won't join Mitt Romney on the GOP presidential ticket.
Bush says no one's asked him to submit personal documents to the team picking Romney's vice presidential nominee. He also says he's certain he won't be asked, either. Bush says he backs his "friend" and fellow Floridian, Sen. Marco Rubio, for the slot.
But the former governor did have some advice for whomever Romney chooses: "Have fun."
Bush was in Washington on Friday to testify at a House Budget Committee hearing. He told the panel he would support higher taxes if the ratio was $1 raised for every $10 cut from spending. But he said it's easy for him to go along with that because he's not a candidate for anything.
