Jeb Bush is seriously considering a run for president in 2016, according to his son George P. Bush.

“I I think it’s more than likely that he’s giving this a serious thought in moving forward,” the younger Bush told ABC News’ Jonathan Karl for a segment on Sunday morning’s This Week.

When Karl asked for clarification if that meant “more than likely” that Jeb Bush would join the Republican presidential race, George said yes, “that he’ll run.”

“If you had asked me a few years back, I would’ve said it was less likely,” Bush said. “The family will be behind him 100% if he decides to do it.”

Jeb’s son is making his first run for office himself. He’s on the ballot in Texas as the Republican candidate for state land commissioner. According to ABC News, if he wins he would be in charge of Texas’s “land and mineral resources” as well as veterans programs and the Permanent School Fund, “the nation’s largest educational endowment at $37.7 billion.”

If his father runs for president, it would mark the third time a member of the Bush family did so. Jeb’s brother George W. served in the Oval Office from 2001 to 2009 before leaving deeply unpopular. Their father, George H.W., served one term as president before losing to Bill Clinton in 1992. He was also Ronald Reagan’s vice president for eight years.

Despite that legacy, the 38-year-old George P. Bush told Karl he had never actually given thought to being president himself.

As for whether his famous name still carries some negative weight after his uncle’s time in the White House, he doesn’t think it does in his own campaign.

“It’s an overall positive for me,” Bush told ABC. “But I said from day one of my campaign, 23 months ago, that I am a man of my own right, who stands on my own two feet with my vision.”

According to CNN, Jeb Bush told a group of South Carolina business leaders last week that he was still mulling the possibility of running for president and would decide in early 2015.
