Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush said Monday he intends to still be campaigning when his home state holds elections next month.
Once a frontrunner, Bush has fallen to the middle of the pack in the Republican contest for the presidential nomination. In addition to trailing billionaire Donald Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, he has recently slipped behind fellow Floridian Sen. Marco Rubio.
"I'm totally confident I'll be campaigning in Florida, and I'm confident I'll do really well there with the best organization," Bush said in an interview on CNBC's "Squawk on the Street."
Florida holds its primary on March 15 and is one of a handful of winner-take-all primaries, which award all the state's delegates to the first-place finisher.
