WASHINGTON (AP) - Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush wants to be president.

That's according to his brother, former President George W. Bush, who notes that Jeb hasn't made any final decisions about the 2016 presidential contest.

George W. Bush told Fox News on Thursday that the pair recently spoke about Jeb's political future at an event honoring veterans. The elder Bush says he's encouraging his brother to run. George W. Bush says "he thinks" his brother wants to.

He says Jeb would "make a great president" in part because he watched his father and brother serve in the White House.

George W. Bush says that Jeb is "a very thoughtful man" who's weighing his options.

Jeb Bush would be an early front-runner should he enter the race for the next Republican presidential nomination.
