UNIVERSITY PARK -- U.S. Rep. Joe Barton, R-Ennis, said he wanted to make sure he shared Thursday -- the day of the formal dedication ceremony of the George W. Bush Presidential Center -- with his longtime friend.
Barton said he and George W. Bush have been friends for years, going back so far that he helped with George H.W. Bush's presidential campaign -- and even encouraged George W. Bush to run for Texas governor many years ago.
"I wanted to be here to show personal support," Barton said.
