Sounding like a presidential candidate — even though he's not expected to announce for a few more weeks — Jeb Bush issues a direct-to-camera pitch in a video message released Sunday morning.

The message is timed to coincide with the launch of Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, which is expected to come in a similar video message.

In his pitch, Bush says that he's looking forward to a "substantive" debate and that the country needs to move beyond the past seven years of Democratic control of the executive office.

"We must to do better than the Obama-Clinton foreign policy that has damaged
relationships with our allies and emboldened our enemies," Bush says. "Better than their failed, big-government policies that grow our debt and stand in the way of real economic growth and prosperity."

He adds, "I believe it's conservative ideas that will renew America, grow our economy, put our fiscal house in order and make our great country even stronger. I know we can do better — and, together, we will."

While Clinton announces on Sunday and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) plans to launch his bid Monday evening, Bush plans to visit Ohio, Louisiana and New Hampshire this week to raise money for his PACs and appear at campaign-style events.
