After the unexpectedly successful finish in New Hampshire, Jeb Bush will get help in his South Carolina campaign from elder brother George W. Bush, which already taped a radio ad on behalf of his brother.
The ad which will be rolled out in The Palmetto State next week presents the former U.S. president praising his brother for his performance as Florida governor. George W. Bush noted that Jeb tackled crises like a real leader – calmly and steadily.
But George did not stop here. He previously indirectly helped brother Jeb with fundraising and also agreed to appear in a TV ad supporting the leading super PAC that currently backs Jeb: Right to Rise USA.
Yet, with the new radio ad it will be the first time George W. Bush would directly support his brother in a campaign trail. He also said in the ad that Jeb’s positive attitude toward the military and their families is a clear sign that he would be a steady hand in case of national crisis. George also touted his brother as a leader who’s not afraid of making tough decisions and keep America safe and free.
According to Jeb’s campaign, the 43th U.S. President plans to feature in a cameo supporting Jeb before the start of South Carolina primary on Feb 20. Hopefully, the state will be as good for Jeb Bush as it was for George W. Bush and his father since voters hold in high regard the Bush family.
On Tuesday night, Sen. Lindsey Graham, who recently morphed into a Jeb supporter after putting an end to his own presidential campaign, noted that the name of the family is ‘long and deep’ in The Palmetto State.
He also told reporters that the 41th and 43th Presidents are ‘well respected’ there. Graham also believes that because of this tradition and many ‘generations of servants,’ Jeb will be more than welcomed in his state.
In the meantime, Jimmy Kimmel and other comedians were glad that George W. Bush was back on the political stage. He recently released a parody of the radio ad in which the former U.S. President made a strong case for his younger brother.
In the parody ad, an actor impersonates George W. Bush with a surprisingly similar voiceover. The impersonator touts Jeb as the President America currently needs amid problems with families that cannot put enough food on their kids’ plates and students who do not learn in schools. But better watch the video yourself:
