(WGME) - Is former president and part-time Maine resident George H.W. Bush voting for Hillary Clinton?

A Kennedy says yes, but his spokesperson says it's private.

Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, daughter of Robert Kennedy, met with the former president in Maine Monday.

A Facebook photo of the two of them shaking hands has the caption, "The president told me he's voting for Hillary".

In a telephone interview with Politico, Townsend doubled down, saying he told her he's voting for a Democrat.

A Bush spokesperson sent out a statement, saying the former president's vote is private and he is not commenting on the presidential race.

"The vote President Bush will cast as a private citizen in some 50 days will be just that: a private vote cast in some 50 days," Jim McGrath, a spokesman for Bush, told CNN. "He is not commenting on the presidential race in the interim."
