Washington, July 21 (ANI): Former US President George W. Bush has said that he will not campaign on behalf of Republican candidates before the mid-term elections this fall.
"He's not interested," National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Pete Sessions told reporters today, according to Politico.
Sessions said the former president has maintained from the day he left office that he would not get involved with Congressional races or do fundraisers for GOP candidates.
CBS News polling in January of last year found that Bush left office with a 22 percent approval rating, making him one of the most unpopular departing presidents in history.
At a fundraiser last month, the president said Republicans "drove the car into the ditch" and now "want the keys back."
"No. You can't drive," he continued. "We don't want to have to go back into the ditch. We just got the car out." (ANI)
