Bush will help raise money for Gov. Rick Scott's bid to oust Democratic Sen.

Bush's forays into other races in Texas and across the USA reflect the serious headwinds facing the GOP in the November elections, where Republican control of the House and Senate could hinge on how voters feel about the early tenure of President Donald Trump.
