Jeb Bush's son: former Presidents Bush could 'potentially' vote for Clinton



Jeb Bush's son, George P. Bush, suggests that his uncle and grandfather could vote for Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump.

The Texas land commissioner floated the idea Tuesday night at an event in San Marcos, in which he said he's the only one of the family who will vote straight ticket Republican.

So does that mean Presidents Bush could go for Clinton, an Associated Press reporter asked.

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

Jeb Bush has also said he won't vote for Trump. Nor will he vote for Clinton.

The former governnor has not responded to an email this morning about his current thinking or the state of the race, where Trump now leads in Florida.

Trump can't seem to let go his feud with Bush.

"Here’s a woman, she makes a speech for 15 minutes, she goes to home, goes to bed. Honestly, she has less energy than Jeb Bush," Trump said last week in Charlotte.
