Bush Acts Like President-Elect
Nov. 27, 2000
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) _ Gov. George W. Bush acted the part of president-elect Sunday night, but did not claim the title. While Bush said he had been elected president when Florida election officials certified his narrow victory there, his communications director said he did not wish to be called president-elect while Vice President Al Gore is still contesting the outcome.
``He prefers that we call him Governor Bush,'' said Karen Hughes.
