16. Meghan McCain still hasn't committed to voting for Biden, according to this recent interview.

She says she's not voting for Trump but she won't say who she is voting for, and she disses Susan Rice.

Hundreds Of Former Bush Officials Unite To Endorse Joe Biden
July 1, 2020

A group of former George W. Bush administration officials has pledged to "engage and mobilize disenchanted GOP voters" through a new super PAC formed to elect Joe Biden to the White House.


The group '43 Alumni for Biden', a reference to Bush, the 43rd president described its formation as an effort to restore "the principles of unity, tolerance and compassion to the greatest elected office in the world."

"For four years, we have watched with grave concern as the party we loved has morphed into a cult of personality that little resembles the party of Lincoln and Reagan," said Karen Kirksey, the group's director.

"We endorse Joe Biden not necessarily in full support of his political agenda but rather in full agreement with the urgent need to restore the soul of this nation.
Once elected, we look forward to working in a bipartisan way through civil, spirited debate on the many important issues facing Americans today and for decades to come."

The group, consisting of hundreds of former Bush officials, is the latest effort by establishment Republicans to reject the leadership of President Trump, who sailed to the presidency in the 2016 election on a blistering, divisive campaign centered on nationalism and a rejection of the politically correct....

12. I think a W endorsement would clinch Texas for Biden.

Hope he has the political courage to do so.

10. Bush's daughter Barbara almost surely will, she endorsed Hillary pretty fast.

She seems the most liberal of that family, although Jenna has come a long ways.

14. She tends to be the really quiet one. She recently got married.

Her basic instincts appear to be progressive. But her dad seems to really admire her, he has her running a Bush family endowment charity (using family money from what I understand). The family is pretty well off, I believe.

15. I agree, he will follow her lead. I don't see her coming out for Trump at all.

They likely will either endorse Biden or keep silent and uninvolved, except for casting ballots.

17. Jeb hates Trump. His endorsement would guarantee Florida for Biden.
