George P. Bush, Jeb Bush’s son has just declared that his father will ‘more than likely’ run for president in 2016. His statement was made during an interview that aired on Sunday. Jeb’s eldest son eagerly answered the ABC News’s questions. In other news, Bush’s younger son is knee-deep in his campaign for Texas land commissioner.
When asked about his father’s plans for the future about Jon Karl, George P. Bush hesitated, the same way that all his family members had in the past.
“I think he’s still assessing it.”
But when the interviewer pressed for a specific probability, Bush added:
“It’s more than likely that he’s giving this a serious thought… and moving forward.”
Again, the ABC interviewer asked if Bush was planning to run for elections.
“He’ll run.” Bush responded “If you had asked me a few years back, I would have said it was less likely. The family will be behind him 100 percent.”
Jeb Bush’s brother and father are former presidents. Both of them encouraged him to run. On the other hand, Barbara Bush, his mother, and other family members expressed their reservations. At the moment, Bush, a former Republican governor of Florida, is a favorite of the party’s establishment wing.
If he does decide to run, he will receive strong support from the donor network that his father and brother cultivated. However, his connections with the establishment may also present a liability. Some members glance at Jeb with skepticism due to his moderate approach to the immigration policy and education.
“It’s an overall positive for me. But I said from day one of my campaign, 23 months ago, that I am a man of my own right, who stands on my own two feet with my vision. And I need folks to evaluate me based on what I bring to the table.” – Bush
Jeb Bush is still considering his bid for presidency. He said that he would only launch a bid if he can campaign on the problems which he deems are important. In addition to this, he declared that he is likely to make up his mind on a run after November’s election. Although this is his first run for the office, Bush has a lot of experience in Republican politics. When he was only 12 years of age he recited the pledge of allegiance at the Republican National Convention.
