Reports: Former President George H.W. Bush to vote for Clinton
Posted September 20
CNN and the Washington Post reported that former President George H.W. Bush told some friends Monday that he would vote for Hillary Clinton in November. Both newspapers cited sources close to Bush, who was speaking to a gathering of about 40.
Other news organizations pointed to a Facebook post from Kathleen Hartington Kennedy Townsend, daughter of Robert F. Kennedy, who posted a photo of herself with George H.W. Bush with the caption “The President told me he’s voting for Hillary!”
Representatives for the Bush family declined to comment.
"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. He is not commenting on the presidential race in the interim," Bush spokesman Jim McGrath said in a statement.
