Former President George W. Bush tells ABC News on Wednesday night that his brother, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, should enter the 2016 presidential race.
“There are other people out there that are very qualified and we’ve had enough Bushes,” she told TODAY’s Matt Lauer on Thursday from inside her son's presidential library.
When asked whether she expects Jeb Bush, the former Florida governor, to make a presidential run, Mrs. Bush said there are many worthy candidates.
“It’s a great country. There are a lot of great families and it’s not just four families,” she said.
“He’s the most qualified, but I don’t think he’ll run.”
On Wednesday night, George W., said his younger brother, Jeb, would “be a marvelous candidate if he chooses to do so," in an ABC's “World News with Diane Sawyer.
"He doesn’t need my counsel ’cause he knows what it is, which is ‘run,’ ” the elder Bush brother said. “But whether he does or not, it’s a very personal decision.”
Bush then made a 2016 prediction: Hillary vs. Jeb.
