Washington (CNN) - Mitt Romney met with former President George H.W. Bush and his wife Barbara Thursday at their Houston-area home. Romney aides say the get together was not about seeking an endorsement, and the two are friends.
Romney's quick trip to Texas came on the same day fellow candidate and the state's governor Rick Perry was in California. Perry became governor when Bush's son, George W. Bush, was elected president.
Former George W. Bush partisans have been critical of the Perry campaign.
