Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has cleared the way to a White House run by resigning his position at Barclays bank.

The potential Republican presidential candidate will be leaving his job as a paid adviser to the institution on Dec. 31, according to Politico, citing a Financial Times report.

The Times' report is headlined, "Jeb Bush’s web of interests face scrutiny as he explores presidential bid."

In 2012, GOP nominee Mitt Romney came under close examination for his business dealings while working at Bain Capital, a buyout firm, Politico reported.

Earlier this week, Bush took his most definitive step yet toward running for president, announcing plans to "actively explore" a campaign and form a new political operation allowing him to raise money for like-minded Republicans.

In a holiday message posted on Bush's Facebook page and Twitter account, the son and brother of past Republican presidents said he discussed the "future of our nation" and a potential bid for the White House with members of his family over the Thanksgiving holiday.

"As a result of these conversations and thoughtful consideration of the kind of strong leadership I think America needs, I have decided to actively explore the possibility of running for president of the United States," Bush wrote.
