Bush: 'I Have to Make My Own Way As a Candidate'
Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush spoke to Sean Hannity tonight in a wide-ranging interview about foreign and domestic policy, his GOP rivals and his family.
Hannity asked Bush why he thinks he is the most qualified candidate.
"I have the leadership skills to make it possible to restore economic growth, lift people's spirits and secure America's position in the world where we can create a more peaceful world," Bush replied, adding he was an extraordinarily good governor for eight years.
Hannity told Bush he noticed his campaign logo only features his first name and an exclamation point. He asked the former Florida governor if he thinks his last name will hurt him as a candidate.
"For starters, I'm blessed to be George and Barbara Bush's son," he stated. "I'm blessed to be Jeb Bush. I know that if I'm going to be successful, I have to make my own way as a candidate."
Bush also weighed in on running against Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.).
"It's a little awkward, to be honest with you," Bush said. "I mean, look, he's a great guy. I admire him a lot. He's got a great family. And it's a little awkward when you have a good friend that's running for the same position ... but that's just the way it is. It doesn't bother me a bit."
