Jeb's Son Calls for GOP Unity: 'You Get Back Up and You Help the Man That Won'
A member of the Bush family has now urged Republicans to stop the infighting and get behind Donald Trump.
George P. Bush, the Texas land commissioner and the son of Jeb Bush, told a gathering of GOP activists over the weekend that it's time to put aside the contentious primary battles.
"From Team Bush, it's a bitter pill to swallow, but you know what? You get back up and you help the man that won, and you make sure that we stop Hillary Clinton," he said, drawing a big round of applause.
Bush, 40, is serving as the Texas GOP's victory chairman, though he has not specifically endorsed Trump.
The Bush family, including Jeb Bush and both former presidents have declined to endorse Trump and none appeared at the GOP convention last month.
Prior to the Cleveland gathering, Jeb Bush penned a blistering op-ed last month to once again "reject" Trump as the leader of the GOP.
"While he has no doubt tapped into the anxiety so prevalent in the United States today, I do not believe Donald Trump reflects the principles or inclusive legacy of the Republican Party. And I sincerely hope he doesn’t represent its future," the former Florida governor wrote.
