Columba Bush Overview
The language of love is a universal language. Latin America has always been in the blood of Jeb Bush, the governor of Florida from 1999 to 2007. The second son of former US President, Jeb has a degree in Latin American studies from the University of Texas. Not only that, but he also has a Latina wife – Columba Bush who is Mexican-American.
