Report: George HW Bush to Vote for Hillary Clinton
Politico reports that the former president will vote against his party in 2016.
— -- Former President George H.W. Bush plans to vote for Hillary Clinton in the upcoming election, according to a report by Politico.
The Republican 41st president and member of a conservative political dynasty that spans several generations will vote against his party, says the scion of another family at the center of American politics.
Kathleen Hartington Kennedy Townsend, a former Maryland lieutenant governor and daughter of Robert F. Kennedy, posted to Facebook, "The President told me he’s voting for Hillary!!”
Townsend told Politico she met with Bush, 92, in Maine on Monday, where he told her about his preference in this year’s ballot. “That’s what he said,” she told Politico.
“The vote President Bush will cast as a private citizen in some 50 days will be just that: a private vote cast in some 50 days,” a spokesman for Bush told ABC News. “He is not commenting on the presidential race in the interim.”
