Report: Jeb Bush's father voting for Hillary Clinton



A member of the Kennedy family says George H.W. Bush is voting for Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump.

"The President told me he’s voting for Hillary!!” Kathleen Kennedy Townsend wrote in a Facebook post that showed her next to the 41st President. Townsend is a daughter of Robert F. Kennedy.

We've asked Jeb Bush for comment. The younger Bush is also opposed to Trump but has said he will not vote for Clinton.

In a statement to news outlets, a Bush family spokesman, Jim McGrath, avoided confirming or denying the news. "The vote President Bush will cast as a private citizen in some 50 days will be just that: a private vote cast in 50 days. He is not commenting on the presidential race in the interim.”
