Bush drew roars of approval from members of the NAACP at their 97th annual convention when he criticized his party, which is campaigning to keep control of Congress in November elections, for writing off the black vote in the past.
"I consider it a tragedy that the party of Abraham Lincoln let go of its historic ties to the African American community," Bush said. "For too long my party wrote off the African American vote and many African Americans wrote off the Republican Party," he said.
NAACP President Bruce Gordon said he thought Bush gave a "very strong performance," but actions will speak louder than words.
