TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Former Florida governor Jeb Bush made his way back to Tallahassee Monday. He spoke to a crowd of supporters at the FSU Turnbull Center and outlined the changes he plans to make if he is the third Bush elected president.

Nearly 400 people filled the room at the FSU Turnbull conference center to hear him speak.

It was a morning of nostalgia for both Bush and many of the people who attended the event. Bush spent 8 years in Tallahassee as governor from 1999 until 2007.

Bush spoke about how he was nicknamed "Veto" Corleone while governor because of his constant vetoes on spending polices. He said he plans to do the similar cuts to government spending if elected president.

The former Florida governor also said he's going to implement tax policies similar to the Reagan era, hoping to make the government shrink and the economy grow.

Many people who worked with Jeb in Tallahassee attended today's event--including FSU president and former house speaker John Thrasher.

Bush also received a round of applause after commenting that John McCain is a true war hero.

The comment was in response to Donald Trump's remarks in which Trump recently said McCain was only a war hero because he was captured.
