McCain: Jeb Bush 'Smartest Guy I Know on Education'

McCain: Jeb Bush 'Smartest Guy I Know on Education'

In a recent interview with the Tampa Bay Times at the U.S. Capitol, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said that potential 2016 presidential candidate Jeb. Bush (R) is “the smartest guy I know on education.”

McCain reportedly told the Times that he spoke with the former Florida governor a couple weeks ago about education policy.

Despite labeling Jeb Bush the most astute person he knows when it comes to education, McCain deflected when asked if Bush’s support for the Common Core could be an issue.

“What he did for education in Florida … that’s a clear record of success,” he stated.

The Times asked, “Is he a viable candidate for president, there’s a lot of question about the fact that…?”

Completing the question himself, McCain said, “That his name is Bush?” Then he added, “Somebody else’s name is Clinton.”
