TAMPA, Fla. (Reuters) - Jeb Bush plans to release 250,000 emails from his time as Florida governor, part of an e-book that he is writing as he considers a 2016 presidential run, according to a interview airing on Sunday on a Miami-area television station.

Bush, a former two-term Republican governor, said the emails show his commitment to transparency in public service amid intense speculation that he is gearing up to enter the race.

"I'll let people make up their mind," he said in the interview with WPLG Local 10 News, an ABC affiliate.

"There’s some funny ones. There’s some sad ones. There’s some serious ones," he added.

The emails will be released early next year.
