(b. 1946) Forty-third President of the United States who won his office after a hotly-contested election. Extremely rare A.L.S. "George Bush" as Presidential candidate, 2pp. 4to., [n.p., nd., c. 2000]. A draft to be used for reproduction in a form letter to be sent to potential donors to Bush's campaign. Bush left several spaces in the letter meant to be filled-in later by computer-generated text. He writes, in part: "In one year, America will have a new president. With your help I can be that man…Since June 12, I have traveled to 37 states and built strong organizations in all 50 states. My compassionate conservative philosophy and positive message made me the leader in all national polls this year - not only against the GOP field, but against Al Gore… I face a challenge no other Republican does. I am the Republican the Clinton-Gore White House fears. Clinton is already attacking me. Other Republican candidates may resort to personal attacks and negative ads… we must still raise more to stay on schedule and be able to execute our plan… We have a good chance to win and I'm honored to have you on my team.." Very fine condition.
