Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush is asking the state’s Republicans to support presidential candidate Donald Trump. Speaking at a Texas Republican Chairman’s Association meeting and as the group’s 2016 Victory Chair, Bush addressed the group over the weekend.
Trump defeated Bush’s father, Jeb Bush, in the GOP primary race and George P. Bush has not publicly endorsed Trump to date. Former presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush have not publicly endorsed, nor has Jeb Bush.
Speaking to the group on Aug. 7, in a video posted by The Texas Tribune, Bush said, “And you know, from Team Bush, it’s a bitter pill to swallow, but uou get back up, you help the man that won, and you make sure we stop Hillary Clinton.”
