On Thursday in Houston, former President George H.W. Bush and his wife Barbara formally endorsed Mitt Romney in the race for President of the United States. Former President Bush, Mrs. Bush and the Republican primary frontrunner appeared together at the former President’s office in west Houston. According to Mr. Bush, Romney is the perfect and sound choice for President of the United States: “He’s the man to do this job and win the presidency,” Bush said Thursday.
Romney is spent two days in Texas as part of his latest fundraising tour. The endorsement from former President Bush as a true GOP staple is seen to boost his campaign and give it the momentum needed, leading into next week’s primary election.
“I’m honored to have your endorsement and your support”, Romney reportedly told Bush.
While Romney received the endorsement from the Bush family, about a dozen protesters chanted outside of the building. After meeting with the Bush family Romney went to a private fundraiser event. Ticket prices reportedly ranged from $2,500 to $25,000.
