His career in politics started around the same time he founded a private oil company. He gained his first politically significant office in the House of Representatives. In 1980 George ran for presidential elections, but fell short of the popular support. However, his commitment and intelligence did not go unrecognized by a fellow Republican Ronald Reagan, who offered Bush to run for elections as his Vice President. In 1981 Ronald was elected to serve as the 40th President of the United States and George became his right hand.
