ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Former Florida governor Jeb Bush vowed to fix a dysfunctional Washington as he began his U.S. presidential bid on Monday with an attempt to move out of the shadow of his father and brother and their White House legacies. Bush is seeking to be seen as his own man and break out of a crowded field for the Republican presidential nomination to run in the November 2016 election. In a speech in Miami to announce his candidacy, Bush, 62, presented himself as an anti-Washington figure with a can-do spirit. "We will take Washington - the static capital of this dynamic country - out of the business of causing problems," he said. "I know we can fix this. Because I've done it." Bush held an early lead in opinion polls of Republican voters when he first began talking about a White House run six months ago, but that has now dissipated. He is essentially tied for the lead with a host of challengers.
