Bush Ballot Split on Jeb in 2016

Jun 14, 2013 8:36am

During an exclusive interview with ABC News’ Jonathan Karl that will air Sunday on “This Week,” 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 has not given any hints on his thinking, saying he will 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 his mother, Barbara Bush, that the country has had “enough Bushes.”
