Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush told Newsmax correspondent Ashley Martella that Republicans should create "a shadow government" to challenge Democrats.

"In Washington we need to show humility and be the loyal opposition. I actually think we need to organize ourselves the form of a shadow government and make it based on policy and not on partisanship," he said.

Bush believes that the Republican Party needed to broaden is appeal and avoid being "the old white-guy party."

"It means recruiting candidates that look like the population we are trying to attract to our cause," said Bush.
