Texas land commissioner George P. Bush is the son of former Florida governor Jeb Bush, nephew of former President George W. Bush, and grandson of former President George H.W. Bush.
Although Donald Trump had defeated his father in the Republican primaries, last August, George P. Bush endorsed Trump, the Republican Party’s presidential nominee.
But according to Dallas News, last night, Nov. 1, 2016, speaking to a small Republican rally in San Marcos, Texas, George P. Bush says his uncle and grandfather may vote for Hillary Clinton:
“George P. Bush says he’s the only member of his powerful political family who will be voting straight-ticket Republican and says his grandfather and uncle, both former presidents, could ‘potentially’ cast ballots for Hillary Clinton. […]
He was pressed later by The Associated Press to clarify his remarks. He said then of George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush: ‘I don’t know how they voted. I’m speculating, to be honest.’
Asked if either could vote for Clinton, Bush answered: ‘Potentially. But hard to speculate.'”
Last September 19, on her Facebook page, Kathleen Hartington Kennedy Townsend posted a picture of herself shaking the hand of George H.W. Walker Bush, with the caption:
“The President told me he’s voting for Hillary!!”
Townsend is a former Lt. Governor of Maryland and the daughter of the late Robert “Bobby” Kennedy.
A spokesman for George H.W. Bush did not deny it.
