Capitol Watch Blog - Connecticut Politics, Political News and Legislation

Connecticut are mourning the death of Prescott Bush, Jr. - the son of a U.S. Senator, brother of an American president, and uncle to another President.

Bush lived for decades in Greenwich and was a longtime attendee at the annual Prescott Bush Award Dinner - the chief fundraising event for the Connecticut Republican Party.

A well-known figure in Greenwich CT, Bush worked with candidates through the years.

"Connecticut and the Republican Party have lost a great American from a great American family whose hallmark has been public service for over 60 years,'' said Christopher Healy, the state GOP chairman. "Prescott Bush came from a generation that kept America strong, quietly serving their neighbors and was always ready to help anyone in their path. He was a successful businessman, patron of his party, loyal family man and public servant. Prescott Bush was a class act and our nation, state and party will miss him."
