Donald Trump continues his rise in GOP Presidential polls, but Jeb Bush is the solid number two--that, despite concerns of many Republicans about Bush's support of Common Core and immigration reform.

Yesterday on the campaign trail, Bush came out swinging.

He became more forceful in attacks on Trump, and the need to secure the border. Many have complained that Trump is blocking some of the sun for other candidates. Today on AirTalk we'll look in depth at candidate Bush.

Will Bush's strategy prove successful? What can we learn from his background that helps better understand him as a candidate?
