“W” Bush Throws Support And Money Behind Cheney And Murkowski Reelection Bids

Former President George W. Bush has thrown his support behind Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) and Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) for reelection, despite the fact that President Donald Trump is actively seeking to delegitimize both of their positions.

Bush showed his support for Cheney’s reelection campaign by holding a fundraiser in Dallas last autumn, and he is expected to continue to do so for his former vice president’s daughter.

According to the most recent Federal Election Commission reports, Bush contributed Cheney $5,800 on October 28, 2021, for both the general and primary races – the maximum amount that may be given by an individual. Cheney earned $1.9 million in the last quarter of 2021, setting a personal record, and her campaign account now has more than $4.7 million in cash on hand, according to campaign finance reports.

Politico reported on Monday that Bush had previously contributed to Cheney in 2016, but that he had made no additional payments to the Republican presidential candidate in 2021 until October.

The Bush Foundation paid Murkowski $2,900 on December 31, 2021, in support of her primary campaign against Trump-backed Kelly Tshibaka, a former commissioner of the Alaska Department of Administration. Person donations to a primary candidate are limited to a total of $2,900 per individual.

Murkowski earned $1.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2021, leaving her with $4.2 million in cash on hand at the end of the year. According to Politico, the gift in December marked “the first time Bush has given to the Alaska senator, according to FEC records.”

In the same day that Bush’s gift was announced, Trump issued a statement stating that Alaska Gov. Mike Dunleavy (R-AK) had accepted his endorsement, thus agreeing to Trump’s bizarre demand that Dunleavy not back Murkowski in her reelection quest. Both Murkowski and Cheney split with their party in February 2021 and voted to impeach President Donald Trump for his complicity in the assault on the United States Capitol on January 6, 2021.

Since leaving the presidency, Bush has remained mostly out of the political battle. However, in recent years, Bush has made a few subtle jabs at President Donald Trump. On the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, President George W. Bush delivered a speech that many saw as a warning against Trumpism and a condemnation of the assault on the Capitol on January 6, 2017.

According to Bush, who spoke at Shanksville, Pennsylvania, “there is very little cultural connection between violent extremists overseas and violent extremists at home.” In their contempt for pluralism, in their indifference for human life, and in their resolve to desecrate national symbols, they are all offspring of the same evil spirit, ” says the author. “It is our ongoing responsibility to face these individuals.”

Trump slammed Bush’s statements, claiming he “lectures us that terrorists on the ‘right’ are a greater threat than terrorists from foreign nations who detest America.” “He shouldn’t be teaching anybody!” says the author.
