George H.W. Bush is voting for Hillary Clinton, according to a Facebook post by Kathleen Hartington Kennedy Townsend, the former lieutenant governor of Maryland and daughter of the late Robert F. Kennedy.

Townsend told Politico that she met the former president in Maine where he told her he was voting for a Democrat. "That's what he said," she said.

Bush's spokesperson, Jim McGrath, did not confirm or deny the report.

"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," McGrath told CNN. "He is not commenting on the presidential race in the interim."
