Sen. Dole bids farewell to President Bush

Posted: Updated:

Former Kansas Senator Bob Dole has saluted President George H.W. Bush at the casket of the late president.

Like Bush, Dole is a World War II veteran. He arrived in the Capitol rotunda in a wheelchair pushed by an aide. At the casket’s side, the aide lifted Dole, 95, into a standing position. Once steadied, Sen. Dole saluted.

President Bush achieved the office that Dole sought in 1996 as the Republican presidential nominee.

President Bush died on Friday at age 94.
