nbc's kristen welker takes a look at the state of the race. >> reporter: former florida governor jeb bush was the proud father friday watching his son george p. bush get sworn in as texas land commissioner. but there are fresh signs bush is considering his own political future and a race for the white house. earlier this week he resigned from all of his corporate and non-profit board positions after announcing on facebook last month that he's actively exploring a bid. polls show bush is the prohibitive frontrunner in a crowded field, with names that include texas senator ted cruz kentucky senator rand paul and new jersey governor chris christie. and just this week senator marco rubio from bush's home state of florida told npr he's still keeping his own options open. >> as far as, you know speculating about whether two people from the same state can run, it's not unprecedented. >> reporter: for the democrats all eyes are on hillary clinton. this week, she teased her supporters with this e-mail entitled "announcement" that turned out to be a fundraising

6:17 am
