FILE - In this Nov. 20, 2014, file photo, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, center, recites the Pledge of Allegiance before giving the keynote address at the National Summit on Education Reform in Washington. Denisha Merriweather, second from left, who benefited from the Florida tax credit for education, introduced Bush. The faces of the Republican Party’s most ambitious members are changing. Long criticized as the party of old, white, men, the GOP’s next class of presidential contenders may include two Hispanic senators, an Indian-American governor, a female business leader and an African-American neurosurgeon. Among perhaps a dozen GOP White House hopefuls, all but a few are in their 40s and 50s. One of the oldest white men, Jeb Bush, is a fluent Spanish speaker whose wife is a native Mexican. Republicans say they’re starting the 2016 presidential and congressional elections from a strong place after winning control of Congress a few weeks ago. But Democrats say that’s misleading; the midterm electorate was older and whiter than in presidential elections.
