Bush was elected to the highest public office in the U.S. in 1988 after Reaganโ€™s second term. The election was the last time that two different presidents of the same political party served back-to-back terms.

Bush lost his bid for reelection in 1993 to former President Bill Clinton.

Bush and his son became the second father and son duo to be presidents of the United States after George W. Bush was elected in 2000. The first duo was former Presidents John Adams and his son, John Quincy Adams.
