Jeb Bush says no to a run for the U.S. Senate from Florida in 2010.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush will not run for the open Senate seat of Sen. Mel Martinez, he announced in a statement released moments ago.

“After thoughtful consideration, I have decided not to run for the United States Senate in 2010,” said Bush. “While the opportunity to serve my state and country during these turbulent and dynamic times is compelling, now is not the right time to return to elected office.”

Flap does not blame Jeb. The GOP will not have anywhere close to a majority in the Senate in the next few election cycles and Jeb can keep his powder dry for a possible Presidential run in 2016. Jeb already has the GOP cred and executive experience to run for the Presidency.

This is not the last we have heard from the Bush family.
