Jeb Bush has voted, but we don't know for whom



Jeb Bush has already voted for president. But he's not saying for whom.

Miami-Dade County election records show his mail ballot was received Oct. 17. But a Bush spokeswoman contacted by the Miami Herald this week wouldn't say which candidate Bush picked in the presidential race. The former Florida governor has said he won't vote for Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton.

One of Bush's sons, Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush, speculated Tuesday night that both his grandfather and uncle -- the two former Presidents George Bush -- might vote for Clinton.

"Potentially. But hard to speculate," the younger Bush said, according to the Associated Press. "I don't know how they voted. I'm speculating, to be honest."

George P. Bush, who's said to be eyeing the Texas governorship, is the only current or former elected member of the clan who's said he's backing Trump.
