Bush Family Split on Jeb Running in 2016
(WASHINGTON) -- During an exclusive interview with ABC News’ Jonathan Karl that will air this weekend, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush joked that his parents are divided on whether he should follow in his brother’s footsteps and run for the White House in 2016.
“I think we’ve got a split ballot amongst the Bush senior family. Pretty sure that’s the case,” he said smiling.
There is speculation that Bush might run in 2016, though he hasn't given any hints about his thinking, saying he'll wait until next year to consider a run.
Karl asked the former Florida governor about whether his father, former President George H.W. Bush, was in support of him seeking the White House after noting recent comments made by Jeb's mother, Barbara Bush, that the country has had “enough Bushes.”
