Does anyone wonder who got Bush’s vote in early ballot?
WASHINGTON – While there have been reports of long lines and an occasional problem in states conducting early voting for the 2008 presidential election, one such voter had no problems at all — President George W. Bush.
Bush and his wife Laura voted on Friday using Texas’ early voting process, according to White House spokeswoman Dana Perino.
“The ballots will be mailed back to Texas today,” she said, adding that the president and his wife would be at the White House for election night. In the 2002, 2004 and 2006 elections, Bush voted in Crawford, Texas, where he owns a 1,600 acre ranch.
Reporters, not taking anything for granted, peppered Perino with questions about whether Bush did in fact vote for Republican contender John McCain.
“I find this hard to believe but so many reporters have asked just who the president voted for, I guess I have to make it clear — for months the president has said he supports John McCain for president and of course he voted for him,” she replied.
