Georgia Democrat touts ties to George H.W. Bush in campaign ads

- The Washington Times - Thursday, April 3, 2014

Michelle Nunn, a Democrat running for Senate in Georgia, has just released a campaign ad showcasing her connection to none other than Republican former President George H.W. Bush.

Ms. Nunn, daughter of former Democrat Sen. Sam Nunn, is banking on her nonpartisan appeal, The Hill reported.

The ad features a photo of her with the former president, along with her statement: "Some people asks me why, with all the dysfunction in Washington, I'm running for Senate. In the end, I think it comes down to me being an optimist. While leading President Bush's Points of Light Foundation, we grew it into the world's largest organization dedicated to volunteer service. I've seen firsthand the power of individuals to work with businesses, charitable and religious organizations to make change."

Ms. Nunn has already won endorsements from other Republicans and former GOP politicos who served with her father, including Sens. John Warner and Dick Lugar, The Hill reported.
