Jeb Bush taking on 'Mount Washington' in speeches

Republican presidential candidate and former Florida governor Jeb Bush speaks to workers at Thumbtack on July 16, 2015 in San Francisco, California.

(CNN)Jeb Bush will tell voters how he plans to take down "Mount Washington" and reform the nation's capital.

The Republican presidential candidate will give his first speech Monday in a series of talks outlining what will be his priorities as president, Bush's campaign said Thursday.
The talk will be at Florida State University and will focus on changing Washington's culture with the goal of improving America's finances.
The former Florida governor vetoed more than 2,500 spending items, produced $2 billion in savings and decreased Florida's state government workforce by 11 percent. While "taking down Mount Tallahassee," Bush banned gifts for lobbyists and toughened new disclosure laws.
    For much of the presidential race, Bush was in the top spot among Republicans. But a poll released this week has him falling to second place behind hotel developer and real estate mogul Donald Trump.
    Bush secured 14%, according to a Suffolk University/USA Today survey. Trump received 17 percent. The rest of the 2016 field remained in single digits: Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, the newest entrant to the race, was at 8%; Texas Sen. Ted Cruz at 6%; Florida Sen. Marco Rubio at 5%; Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee at 4%; and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie at 3%.
    All other Republican hopefuls received less than 2% of the vote -- and about one-third of GOP voters -- 30% -- remain undecided about who they will back.
    The poll's margin of error is plus or minus 5.25 percentage points.
