George W. Bush Thinks His Brother, Jeb, Wants to Be President

1 minute read

Former President George W. Bush said in an interview that aired Thursday that he thinks his younger brother, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, wants to be president in 2016.

“He and I had a conversation,” Bush told Fox and Friends. “I of course was pushing him to run for president. He of course was saying, ‘I haven’t made up my mind.'”

Bush added, “I think he wants to be president.”

There has been significant speculation within the Republican Party as to whether the younger Bush, 61, will run for the office that his brother and father have previously held. It could potentially create another Clinton vs. Bush race for the White House if former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was to also announce her candidacy.
