Jeb Bush’s brother joins Cruz finance team

Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz’s campaign has brought a Bush into the fold.
 
Neil Bush, son of former President George H.W. Bush and brother of former President George W. Bush and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, is joining Cruz’s national finance team, the campaign said Tuesday.
 
{mosads}Neil Bush and his wife, Maria, were among the 13 new additions to the team the campaign announced in a news release.
 
“We are seeing incredible momentum around our campaign,” Cruz says in the release, which notes that he has raised $1.5 million in the past seven days. 
 
“I am thrilled to welcome these new members to our outstanding team. This race is winnowing down between two candidates and this is further testament that conservatives are continuing to unite behind this campaign.”
 
Neil Bush is a Houston-area businessman and philanthropist who has never waded into electoral politics as a candidate. 
 
Jeb Bush ran against Cruz for the GOP nomination this year but ended his campaign last month after a poor showing in South Carolina’s primary.
