Former Gov. Jeb Bush (R-Fla.) wants New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski by his side in New Hampshire.

“Gronk, we’d love to have you at a town hall meeting in New Hampshire,” he told the professional football star in a video he tweeted on Monday.


Bush said Gronkowski was his top pick in a fantasy football league.

“Gronkowski [was] my No. 1 pick,” he said of the tight end. "The guy’s a monster [and] he’s incredible.”

“As long as he doesn’t get hurt, he’ll continue to allow me to beat up on all my family members,” the 2016 GOP presidential candidate added.

The presidential hopeful said he is dominating his fantasy football league this season after coming up short in 2014.

“I have a rematch with my daughter-in-law, a beautiful woman named Sandra,” he said of his most desired matchup in 2015.

“She won the fantasy league last year and this year, the table has been turned,” Bush added.

Bush said he wishes he could put his fantasy team up against other 2016 Republican White House hopefuls.

“I’d love it, because my team would win,” he said.

“I have the best team. It’s the best team by far. It’s a team that never loses [and] it’s a fantastic team.”

Gronkowski’s star power could potentially benefit Bush, given that he is a member of the defending Super Bowl champion Patriots.

Another member of the Patriots, quarterback Tom Brady, has heaped praise on GOP front-runner Donald Trump, calling him a close friend.
