HOMESTEAD, Fla. (August 15, 2014) Jeb Bush is lending his political star power to give Florida Gov. Rick Scott a boost in his tight race for re-election in the nation's largest swing-voting state.

Speaking at a South Florida metals factory, the former Florida governor and potential White House hopeful credited Scott with the state's economic recovery.

Bush said the incumbent Republican has created a "field of dreams" for Floridians looking to prosper after the recession and criticized Scott's likely Democratic opponent, Charlie Crist, as a craven opportunist.

For Scott, the appearing with Bush infused energy into a campaign that has sometimes struggled to connect with voters.

Bush remains one of the most popular politicians in Florida seven years after leaving office.

He’s considered a possible presidential candidate for 2016.
