MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) — Donald Trump apparently won over a member of the Bush family.
George P. Bush, the Texas land commissioner, and son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, is seen on a video posted online encouraging Republicans to unite behind the Republican nominee. The Texas Tribune reports the video of Bush’s remarks was taken Saturday at a meeting of state party activists.
He acknowledges that “from Team Bush it’s a bitter pill to swallow. But added: “You get back up and you help the man that won and you make sure that we stop Hillary Clinton.”
An early favorite in the Republican presidential race, Jeb Bush said in May that he wouldn’t vote for Trump. Former presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush have also withheld their support.
