Daily Caller: Republican Texas congressional candidate Pierce Bush, the grandson of former President George H.W. Bush, marched in an anti-Trump protest in January 2017, according to photos he posted on his personal Facebook page.
Bush jumped into the GOP primary for Texas’ 22nd Congressional District on Monday. “It’s time for new leaders to stand for conservatism that empowers all Americans, placing individuals above government and ensuring we all have the freedom to achieve success in life,” he said in his launch video.
While Bush might benefit from his family name in running for a congressional seat once held by his late grandfather, his past anti-Trump activism could be a stumbling block in an already crowded primary race.
“In the shadow of the Statue of Liberty, my sister, Lauren, and I marched near Battery Park NYC (where people arrived after leaving Ellis Island) with thousands of people today against the immigration ban. No ban. No fear. Refugees are welcome here. #nationofimmigrants #diversityisourstrength,” Bush wrote in a Jan. 29, 2017, post that included three photos from a protest against President Donald Trump’s travel ban. more here
