MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) – The son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is predicting that some of his high-powered political family members could vote for Democrat Hillary Clinton.
George P. Bush’s referring to granddad George H.W. Bush and uncle George W. Bush, neither of whom have endorsed Republican Donald Trump.
That’s a rare election year decision by former presidents of either party.
And it leaves George P. Bush predicting he’ll be the only member of the dynastic political family who will be voting “straight party-ticket Republican” on Election Night.
Asked by the Associated Press why he thinks that, Bush said he was only speculating and suggested the family’s lack of endorsement is a key signal.
George P. Bush is the son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, the onetime presumed frontrunner for the Republican presidential nomination who was vanquished and labeled “low energy” by Trump.
