TAMPA, Fla. (AP) – Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is urging Republican Mitt Romney to connect to people emotionally if he hopes to persuade voters to support him.

Bush spoke on ABC’s “Good Morning America” in advance of Romney’s address to the Republican National Convention Thursday night.

He notes that Romney will have to show more of himself. Bush says that will be hard for Romney because he’s not suddenly going to come across in a “new age kind of way.”

Bush also stresses that Republicans shouldn’t do anything “stupid.” He says the party must acknowledge the nation’s increasing diversity when addressing issues of immigration and creating a climate of economic growth.

He says that if the political parties ignore demographics, “you do it at your peril.”
