WASHINGTON (CNN) – President George W. Bush lent some of his conservative credibility to his brother Jeb’s campaign.
The Bush brothers spoke to a packed South Carolina crowd hoping to gain traction before the first in the south primary.
Meanwhile Bernie Sanders is attempting to convince Nevada voters he is not what rival Hillary Clinton calls a single issue candidate.
“This is Bush Country, Mr. President,” said Senator Lindsey Graham, (R) South Carolina.
Former President George W. Bush speaking to a friendly South Carolina crowd says he stepping back onto the campaign trail for two reasons.
“One because I care deeply about Jeb. And two because I care deeply about this country,” said George.
Donald Trump insisting he and the bush family have, “No bad blood…” But at last weekend’s GOP debate, Trump’s assault on the former president drew loud boos.
“I’m sick and tired of him going after my family. My brother was building a security apparatus to keep us safe,” said Jeb.
“The World Trade Center came down during your brother’s reign. Remember that. That’s not keeping us safe,” said Trump.
Marco Rubio, who has clashed with his former mentor Jeb, came to George W. Bush’s defense.
“The World Trade Center came down because Bill Clinton didn’t kill Osama bin Laden when he had the chance to kill him,” said Rubio.
Meanwhile Hillary Clinton is trying to brand Bernie Sanders.
“I’m not a single-issue candidate. I am not a single issue candidate. I am not a single-issue candidate,” said Hillary in multiple speeches.
She’s hoping to slow his surge before voting begins in Nevada.
“The idea that I am a single-issue candidate. We are the only nation, major nation on earth, that doesn’t guarantee healthcare for all people. We have to raise the minimum wage to a living wage. It’s not one issue,” said Bernie Sanders.
