George P. Bush, fourth generation of a family whose political lines have run through Connecticut, Texas and Florida, is coming to Washington to help raise money for “the Donkey Whisperer.”
That’s first-term Texas Rep. Roger Williams, billing Bush as a “special guest” at Thursday’s fundraiser — credit Paul Bedard’s Washington Secrets with this tip.
Bush is running for land commissioner back home — an office considered a gateway to greater statewide office, and perhaps more in the case of a family that counts two presidents, one U.S. senator and a governor in its lineage.
George Prescott Bush is the first-born son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, nephew of former President George W. Bush, grandson son of former President George H.W. Bush, great-grandson of Connecticut Senator Prescott Bush.
And the Donkey Whisperer ad is worth the watching — ask the other 2 million people who have viewed it.
Seems Williams also was first to endorse Bush’s own campaign:
