Bush now spends his time crisscrossing Texas and the country, raising money and meeting with supporters. He was in Austin on Monday and posed for pictures outside the state Capitol before disappearing into meetings with legislators.
Someone he didn’t see, however, was Perry. The governor said Bush’s seeking elected office is a good thing for Texas and the Republican Party, and that he would like to speak to him about it adding: ‘‘He knows my phone number.’’
But then, Bush has his uncle to turn to for Texas gubernatorial perspective.
‘‘It’s much like starting a business,’’ Bush said, ‘‘and having people who have been there and done it and run statewide, it’s definitely been helpful.’’
