In an interview Monday with TODAY’s Matt Lauer, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush refused to rule out the possibility when asked if he planned to run for the GOP presidential nominee in 2016?

“That’s way off into the future,” Bush answered.

“I have a voice. I want to share my beliefs about how the conservative movement and the Republican party can regain its footing, because we’ve lost our way.”

Lauer responded: “But you clearly have not ruled out — you will not definitively rule out a run for president in 2016?”

“I won’t, but I’m not going to declare today either, Matt,” Bush replied.

The former governor was on NBC plugging his new book, “Immigration Wars,” and told Lauer he was “optimistic that there could be a consensus about going forward on immigration.”
