grandson, loses Texas Congressional bid

Republican Pierce Bush, a grandson of former President George H.W. Bush, failed to advance out of Tuesday’s primary in his bid for a Houston congressional seat, becoming the first member of his family to lose a race in Texas in more than 40 years. Aside from the recognition of coming from America’s most enduring Republican dynasty, Bush 34, was endorsed by the outgoing GOP incumbent, Rep. Pete Olson and raised more money than many of the other 14 candidates in the field. Troy Nehls and Kathaleen Wall, staunch defenders of President Donald Trump, advanced instead to the runoff.

Either get on the Trump Train, or you will be left behind. This is a perfect example! The Bush family has made no secret of their hatred for all things Trump and they now see you reap what you sow!

The Republican Party transformation moves forward. The repudiation of the Bushes, Jeb and Pierce whatever their actual political stance sends a message that the past is not going to be repeated. Anyone or anything with even the scent of a RINO has no future in the Republican Party.

I live in TX Congressional district 22. To me and everyone i know; Pierce Bush is an interloper and not worthy of anyone's vote. I am a true conservative and not a partisan huckster. Dist 22 is full of like minded individuals such as myself; we see right through this sham candidate (there are many others like Pierce in this race)

#s 13 and 14 offer insight. One big fact is that Nehls is a well-known commodity in Fort Bend County, has been Sheriff for the past eight years, and constable eight years before that, both elective offices. Wall is not likely to win the runoff, although she has the resources to give it a go. As far as Pierce Bush...soft-speaking like his grandfather, apparently afraid of developing any real contrast between himself or the large field on issues...with his getting in at the last minute with residency questions...not a recipe for success. I found his effort disappointing. (BTW: I was working in Fort Bend on my son's campaign for another office.)

The arrogance of Pierce Bush is that he didn't even live in TX-22 where I live. When GW Bush called Bill Clinton a "brother from another mother" that was proof that George W like his father was a euroweanie elitist! Good riddance to the Bush family in politics!

Bush's brand is worthless. GW was a nice enough guy but with some major flaws politically. Global elites are out of favor because it's been exposed that they are antithetical to democracy. To get around this, Rove recruited the evangelicals but even they found that actions speak way louder than words. Rove's strategy would never work today. Now if only Massachusetts could stop voting for Kennedys (although at least they were right to stop sending Markey back).

The Bush Family are a longtime globalist banking related family. That became evident by the way G.W. Bush handled the Saudis who were in the USA during the Saudi terrorist perpetrated 9/11 attacks, when prominent Saudis in America were immediately allowed to load up on aircraft and return to Saudi Arabia before any comprehensive investigation of the 9/11 attacks was even initiated. The Bushes were not brave President’s, while G.H.W. Bush had a distinguished Second World War record, he surrendered to the Democrats with the reversal of his “no new taxes” pledge to Republican voters, that cost him his re-election bid; and G.W. Bush when the going got tough in Iraq with American military members losing their lives everyday there, remained silent as far as defending both his personal and professional reputations against fraudulent Democrat attacks against him, and especially the US military, along with his entire military and political policy agenda in Iraq and at home for years, a deficiency in leadership that helped to bring about the Obama era. On top of that he started hobnobbing with the corrupt Clintons, and I have no problem making a wild assed guess that the Bushes voted for Hillary Clinton over President Trump in the 2016 election.
