George W. Bush: ‘I Hope’ Jeb Bush Runs For President In 2016
In a wide-ranging interview in Parade magazine, former President George W. Bush expressed his support for his brother, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, if he decides to mount a bid for the presidency in 2016. Bush said he hopes that voters will judge his brother on his record as the former governor of the Sunshine State and not simply on his last name.
“Your brother Jeb has been talked about as a potential candidate for president,” asked the Parade reporter. “Is the country—I mean this respectfully—ready for another Bush?”
“That’s for Jeb to figure out, you know what I mean?” Bush replied through laughs. “I would hope that people would judge (him), if Jeb were to run, on his merits and his track record. … So I hope he will run.”
