Bush no longer interested in Marlins

Former Florida governor and presidential candidate Jeb Bush is out of the running to buy the Marlins, according to the Associated Press.

Bush is paired with former Yankee shortstop Derek Jeter in a group that has bid for the Marlins, and the AP report said that Jeter could still pursue an ownership stake "with other investors".

The person confirmed Bush's decision to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the Marlins have not commented on the status of sales talks. That group also includes former Major League Baseball pitcher Tom Glavine.

Jeb Bush has dropped out of the race for the Miami Marlins.

Wayne Katz, the Proskauer Rose attorney representing the team, declined to comment. Last week, SportsBusiness Journal's Daniel Kaplan tweeted that the Romney group had recently reached out to Jeter to try and persuade him to "dump" Bush.

Bush's group and the Romney group had bid about $1.3 billion each to buy the team from Jeffrey Loria, who bought the Marlins for $158.5 million in 2002 from John Henry.

Bush said earlier this month he was "confident" the sale would go through and said at the time that the bidding team was "hoping to learn sooner rather than later" if they would be able to purchase the Marlins. I'm excited about the community aspects of this'.

Jeter and Bush originally agreed to run the group together as general partners, with three additional limited partners on the board.

David Samson, the Marlins president, did not return a message for comment.

Bush, 64, lives in Miami.
