LOS ANGELES (AP) — Republican presidential contender Jeb Bush will be an opening-night guest on Stephen Colbert’s late-night show.

In a tweet posted Tuesday, the former “Colbert Report” host said Bush will join him on the Sept. 8 debut of CBS’ “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”

“My first GOP candidate!” his Twitter post said, then poked fun at the size of the GOP field. “Luckily I do 200 shows a year, so I think I can fit them all.”

Bush responded in light-hearted kind.

“Only if you have at least two of us on each show. Looking forward to joining your first #LSSC next month!” Bush tweeted, using the hashtag for Colbert’s show.

CBS confirmed that the former Florida governor will be on the inaugural show, which will include George Clooney.
