George W. Bush’s Brother Supports Libertarian Nominee
George W. Bush’s brother, Marvin Bush, endorsed the Libertarian Party’s Gary Johnson on Wednesday.
“I’m voting libertarian, 100 percent, these two guys — and nobody knows about them, people think it is sort of a wasted vote — but, both Gary Johnson and Bill Weld were each successful, two-term governors who balanced their budgets,” Marvin Bush said on a Washington, D.C., radio show, as first reported by BuzzFeed News.
“So they’re fiscally conservative and their essential message is get bureaucracy off our backs. It used to be a part of what the Republicans believed.”
The Hill reports:
Bush said he doesn’t “necessarily buy” the argument that a vote for Johnson would help GOP nominee Donald Trump, adding he wants to “have a conscience.”
“I want honest leadership,” he said. “I want proven effective people running this country and so, I want to be able to go to bed at night and so I don’t really care about that.”
Bush also criticized both major party nominees.
