WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican presidential claimant Jeb Bush faced a same preference as South Carolina officials — either to mislay a Confederate dwindle from statehouse drift — some-more than a decade ago.

With distant reduction fanfare, Bush as Florida’s administrator 14 years ago private a Confederate dwindle from a Florida state Capitol in Tallahassee. On Feb. 2, 2001, a dwindle changed to a Museum of Florida History.

A Bush mouthpiece pronounced during a time that a administrator believed that many Floridians would determine black of a past “should not be displayed in a demeanour that might order Floridians today.”

Though Bush’s movement drew meagre open courtesy initially, his email association shows that Floridians shortly responded with a brew of regard and vile.
