DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is releasing a list of Republicans he's giving money to from his political action committee as he moves closer to launching his all-but-declared candidacy for president.

Unlike his PAC's contributions earlier this year to Republicans in early voting states, Bush is spreading $117,800 to lawmakers across the country and a Republican Party organization, the state GOP in swing-state Virginia.

Among the recipients from Bush's PAC are seven senators, 12 U.S. representatives and former Republican National Committee Chairman Ed Gillespie of Virginia, who is weighing a campaign for governor.

Bush is raising money and attending an energy policy event Tuesday in Colorado, a state Republicans narrowly lost in the 2012 presidential election.
