Kids, they say the darndest things.

At least that's what Jeb Bush told NBC News exclusively on Wednesday night.

The possible presidential hopeful said son George P. Bush didn't consult him before telling ABC that the next-in-line Bush presidential hopeful was "more than likely" to run in 2016.

"He's got an opinion, he didn't talk to me," Jeb Bush said in a brief interview ahead of a campaign appearance here on behalf of Colorado Republicans. "When you have kids you'll probably have the same frustration, you love them to death and they have their own opinions - but I'll make up my mind just as I've said, at the end of the year."

Asked if he still plans to make up his mind at the end of the year, Bush replied: "Same as I've always said, there's nothing new here."

Bush also spoke about the importance of Hispanic voters to the GOP.

"They're real important," he said of Hispanic voters."It's the emerging voting group not just here but across the country, and the Colorado party and our candidates have made a big effort, and I think they're going to see significant improvements over the last election cycle. So I feel pretty good about it."
