Ex-Florida governor Jeb Bush said in an interview with a conservative online news site Saturday that he would “consider” running along with likely Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney if he were offered the job.
However Bush — the son of president George Bush (1989-1993) and brother of George W. Bush (2001-2009) — thought that Florida Senator Marco Rubio would be better suited for the job.
“Well I’d consider it,” Bush told Newsmax.com, “but I doubt I’ll get a call, and I don’t know if it’s the right thing for me to do. I didn’t run for president for a similar kind of reason, so I’m all in to try to help him get elected.”
Bush, 59, told the West Palm Beach, Florida-based site that the Cuban-American Rubio, a rising star in the party, is “probably the best” candidate for vice president.
