Former President George W. Bush endorsed the presumptive Republican nominee, Mitt Romney. The former President had been speaking at the Council on Foreign Relations in Washington, and he made his four-word endorsement in an elevator. As it was closing. President Bush has largely stayed out of the light due to his unpopularity with voters. Many voters still blame the former President for the economic troubles. President Bush’s favorability and approval ratings have been on the rise since leaving office. Mitt Romney’s campaign released a statement following the unorthodox endorsement. They said they “welcome” the former president’s support. Former President Bush had been the last major Bush family member to not endorse Mitt Romney. Former Governor Jeb Bush, former President George H.W. Bush, and former First Lady Barbara Bush had all endorsed Mitt Romney in March. The former President’s brother Jeb had been floated as a possible presidential contender, and now as a possible veep pick.
