WATCH: CNN Asks Jeb Whether He’s Quitting The Race

November 3, 2015 5:56 p.m.

Republican presidential candidate and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush said Tuesday in an interview with CNN that no, he was not quitting the 2016 GOP race.

GOP rival Donald Trump had said Tuesday that Bush should do what Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker did and quit.

Bush was asked on CNN whether he was quitting the race.

“No. I mean, do we have to talk about Donald Trump? No. I’m not quitting,” Bush replied. “He’s entertaining. He’s fun. He says really funny things in the breaks, in the debate. But I’m running for President of the United States, and it’s a serious endeavor.”

Bush said he was running for President “with joy” and that there were “fun parts” of doing so.
