Jeb Bush, Jr., the son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, said Tuesday he hopes his father becomes the third member of his family to seek the presidency and called a recent comment by one likely challenger for the Republican nomination "strange."
Bush was asked during an interview on CNN whether he wanted to see his father, who had flirted with a presidential bid last year before ultimately deciding not to run, seek the nomination in 2016.
"I don't know. No comment. I certainly hope so giving you the full loaf of bread right there," Bush responded.
Bush went on to question a recent comment by Sen. Marco Rubio, a fellow Floridian who is also thought to be weighing a run. Rubio raised eyebrows on Monday when, in an interview published in GQ, Rubio called the age of the earth one of the great mysteries.
