Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush to speak in Cincinnati

 CINCINNATI (AP) -- Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is next up among political heavyweights visiting Ohio.

Bush is scheduled to headline a Republican National Committee fundraiser Monday evening in Cincinnati. GOP chairman Reince Priebus and Ohio U.S. Sen. Rob Portman are also in the lineup of speakers.

Former President Bill Clinton spoke to Ohio Democrats on Friday in Columbus, and Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky spoke last month at a Hamilton County Republican Party's dinner in Cincinnati.

RNC invitations say tickets start at $1,000 each to attend a reception. The price ranges up to $64,800 for couples serving as event chairs along with dinner, photo opportunities and a roundtable discussion.

Bush has said he probably won't decide until the end of the year whether he will run for president.
