Another #Bocaito from Adrian Carrasquillo at Buzzfeed, special #ThrowbackThursday edition, for when Jeb Bush ran George H.W. Bush’s campaign in the 1980 Republican Primary in Puerto Rico. The piece is a goldmine of old pictures and provides interesting insight as to Jeb Bush’s then aversion to politics.
Jeb Bush was nervous before one of his first campaign speeches ever.
The speech wasn’t in Iowa, or Texas where his family made their name, or even in Florida where he made his. It was at the El San Juan Hotel in Puerto Rico in 1979, before the birthday celebration for Gov. Luis Ferré. Bush was running his father’s presidential campaign in the new primary in Puerto Rico.
