The Bush family is a prominent American political family who has a combined net worth of $400 million.

Early History

The Bush family's origins can be traced back to Samuel Bush, a businessman and industrialist who made his fortune in the steel industry. Samuel Bush was also a prominent supporter of Republican politics and served as a fundraiser for the party in the early 20th century.

Samuel's son, Prescott Bush, followed in his father's footsteps and became a successful businessman and investor in his own right. He served as a U.S. Senator from Connecticut from 1952 to 1963 and was known for his conservative political views and support for the Republican Party.
