According to a daughter of the late Robert F. Kennedy, former president George H.W. Bush is planning to cast his ballot for Hillary Clinton this November.
According to several reports, Kathleen Hartington Kennedy Townsend, posted a photo to her private Facebook account Monday of her shaking hands with the 41st president. Included in the picture was the caption, “The President told me he’s voting for Hillary!!”
In a phone interview with Politico, Townsend confirmed the report. She told Politico that she met with Bush in Maine on Monday, and she said that’s when he revealed who he would be voting for this December.
“That’s what he said,” Townsend told Politico.
The Bush family has kept this report quiet, and a Bush spokesman has released a statement on the issue.
“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,” Jim McGrath, a Bush spokesman said in a statement. “He is not commenting on the presidential race in the interim.”
It is no secret that the Bush family doesn’t like Trump. Neither of the former Presidents or former Florida Governor showed up to the RNC this summer. None of the Bush’s have come out in support of or stated which presidential candidate they will be supporting come Election Day.
Jeb Bush has indicated that he won’t back Trump in November and has said he won’t be voting for Clinton, either.
“In November, I will not vote for Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, but I will support principled conservatives at the state and federal levels, just as I have done my entire life,” he wrote in a Facebook post in May.
