Former President George W. Bush says he believes his brother, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, would beat former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton if the two face off for president in 2016.
In an interview broadcast Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union,"
Bush was asked about his relationship to Clinton, since he has referred to her husband, former President Bill Clinton as his "brother from another mother."

Bush said that would make Hillary Clinton his "sister-in-law." He was then asked who would win if Hillary Clinton ended up with the Democratic nomination and Jeb Bush with the Republican nomination.
"I think he'd beat her," Bush said.
Neither have said they will run, but Clinton is widely expected to do so. She leads early polling by a large margin. Jeb Bush leads most polls that include him in the mix.
