Interviewer: AUDREY JAQUISS. The 43rd Governor of Florida and presidential candidate JEB BUSH is currently a Penn Presidential Professor of Practice affiliated with the Mitchell Center, and we appreciate his engagement with our programs: debating students on immigration policy at the Penn Political Union, joining Togolese activist Farida Nabourema for a discussion on authoritarian rule for our “Democracy in Trouble?” Series, and now sitting down with political theorist Audrey Jaquiss for a discussion of our political moment. In topics ranging from climate change, immigration, the labor movement, and political polarization, Governor Bush speaks in terms that are recognizably conservative — and Republican, in the traditional sense — but which are, in their temperate tone and willingness to grapple with complicated facts, increasingly unfamiliar in today’s combative, Twitter-fueled political environment.
