1980 Republican campaign

Jeb Bush Has No Claim On Reagan’s Legacy

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
George H.W. Bush, ran as a pro-choice moderate in the 1980 Republican primaries – he wanted nothing to do with the social and economic conservative positions Reagan espoused. Almost by default Bush became Reagan’s runningmate, but he never adopted Reagan’s limited government goals and throughout the Reagan presidency he was never trusted by conservatives.
