KUSI contributor and AM 760 radio host Mark Larson discusses ties with President Reagan and Bush operatives
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – As mourners pay their respects in Washington, D.C. for the former president, San Diegans are remembering the life and legacy of President George H.W. Bush.
KUSI contributor and AM 760 KFMB radio host Mark Larson was close with President Ronald Regan and through him learned a lot about President Bush.
Larson says President Bush was one of the great last WWII generation presidents and although he was a north eastern republican, and Reagan was the robust Californian republican, getting together won them the ticket.
President Ronald Reagan visited San Diego in 1988 the day before the election, at an event Larson co-emceed at, on behalf of George Bush. As most president’s don’t do that the day before the election, the 40th president said San Diego was his good luck city and he always came before a Reagan election.
Larson remembers when Bush visited the All-Star game in 92′ with Ted Williams and although Bush wasn’t re-elected, Larson believes he’s a great model for a president.
