George Bush Endorses Susana

No, not that George Bush.

Not not that one either.

I'm talking about George P. Bush, nephew of the recent president, grandson of the first President Bush and son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush.

The Martinez campaign emailed a copy of an endorsement letter from George P., which concludes:

We were all disappointed in the results of the 2008 elections. Southwestern states went Democrat by large margins and Republicans must reverse that trend or we risk becoming the minority party for years to come.

That starts by electing dynamic Republican candidates like Susana Martinez. She will be a great Governor for New Mexico and is exactly the type of transformational candidate that can help rebrand the Republican Party and put us back on the course to becoming a majority party.

This letter comes a couple of days after the Martinez campaign told us, regarding Pete Domenici, Jr.'s entry into the gubernatorial race, that famous names and relatives of politicians don't really mean that much.
