(WASHINGTON, D.C.) The former President’s choice to vote for Hillary Clinton in November was outted by a member of another famous political family, the Kennedy’s. George H.W. Bush, 92, has appeared to remain silent on the White House race between Clinton and Trump, which many considered to be a strong sign of his distaste for the GOP nominee. But his preference for Hillary Clinton was made public by Kathleen Hartington Kennedy Townsend, the former Maryland lieutenant governor and daughter of the late Robert F. Kennedy.
On Monday, Townsend posted a picture on her Facebook page shaking hands next to the former president and this caption:
“The President told me he’s voting for Hillary!!”
In a telephone interview, Townsend said she met with the former president in Maine, where she said he made his preference known that he was voting for a Democrat. “That’s what he said,”, she told Politico. Asked about Townsend’s post, George H.W. Bush spokesman Jim McGrath in an email replied,
“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.”
