In any race that has only two candidates, refusing to support one of them is a defacto endorsement for the other, and this is exactly how the Bush family is planning on working to elect Hillary Clinton as president.
Jeb Bush, when he ran against Donald Trump for the nomination, took a pledge that he would support whoever it would be of the 17 people running who finally became the nominee. When the dust settled, Donald Trump emerged victorious. Jeb Bush has now decided to break his promise to support the nominee. His brother and father have also decided, for the first time in their political lives, to withhold their votes and support of the Republican nominee.
For the first time since his own presidency, George H.W. Bush is planning to stay silent in the race for the Oval Office — and the younger former president Bush plans to stay silent as well.
Bush 41, who enthusiastically endorsed every Republican nominee for the last five election cycles, will stay out of the campaign process this time. He does not have plans to endorse presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump, spokesman Jim McGrath told The Texas Tribune.
