(THE HILL) — Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) says Americans will miss outgoing Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio).
“I admire John Boehner greatly, he’s a great public servant,” the GOP presidential candidate said on “Fox News Sunday.”
“He left at the apex of his time in service to the country with the pope speaking in Congress. I think people are going to miss him in the long run because he’s a person that is focused on solving problems.”

Bush declined to say whether he thought the move was good our bad for Republicans, saying the party needs to focus on winning the presidency if Republicans want to pass conservative legislation.
