George W. Bush Serves as Campaign Adviser and Liaison to Media for his Fathers Presidential Campaign

Bush moved his family to Washington, D.C. in 1988 to work on his father's campaign for the U.S. presidency. He worked as a campaign adviser and served as liaison to the media; he assisted his father by campaigning across the country.

In later years, Bush came to resent what he regarded as the power-driven, clubby world of Washington, and he actively avoided it throughout most of his father's long tenure here. His feelings were largely reinforced by an 18-month stint in Washington as a full-time paid aide to his father's 1988 campaign, and later as an informal adviser to his father in the White House.
