Former President George W Bush does not cast vote for president
[AUSTIN] Former Republican President George W Bush and his wife, Laura, did not cast a vote for US president on Tuesday but did vote for Republicans in down-ballot races, a spokesman for Mr Bush said.
"They voted 'None of the Above' for president," Freddy Ford said in an email about the couple, who now live in Dallas.
In a break from custom, neither George W Bush, president from 2001 to 2009, nor his father, former Republican President George H W Bush, endorsed the Republican nominee for president, New York businessman Donald Trump.
Jeb Bush, the younger brother of George W Bush and the son of George H W Bush, ran against Mr Trump in the acrimonious and insult-laced Republican nominating contest this year.
