Donald Trump is getting support from an unlikely source - Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush, son of Jeb.
In an exclusive, the Texas Tribune reports that:
Addressing state GOP activists Saturday, Bush said it was time to put aside any lingering animosity from the primaries — where Trump defeated Bush's dad, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, among others — and get behind Trump.
"From Team Bush, it's a bitter pill to swallow, but you know what? You get back up and you help the man that won, and you make sure that we stop Hillary Clinton," Bush said, according to video (see below) of the remarks provided by an audience member.
Bush was speaking in his capacity as the Texas GOP's victory chairman, who is responsible for overseeing the party's statewide campaign in November. Bush had been criticized for taking the role without backing the party's presidential nominee.

One wonders, after the verbal beating he took from Trump, what does Jeb think about his son's decision.
