Jenna Bush Hager headlines Richmond charity event

leave a comment »

Former President George W. Bush‘s daughter Jenna Bush Hager was in Richmond on Friday to headline a local charity event. Ms. Hager is married to former Virginia Lt. Governor John Hager‘s son, Henry. She and told our Matt Butner that she and her husband like to get back to Central Virginia often.

Lt. Gov. Hager is of course, the former Chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia. He lost re-election to his post back in 2008 to Jeff Frederick, who was later pushed out of the position.

Matt filed this report for Decision Virginia and included his entire interview with the daughter of the former President:

Former first daughter Jenna Bush Hager was in Richmond Friday.  She was the guest speaker at an event benefitting the Hospital Hospitality House, which serves a  home away from home for VCU Medical Center patients and their families.  I caught her for a brief interview.  We talked about her visit, her ties to Richmond (she is of course married to Richmonder Henry Hager) and her life away from the White House.  Mrs. Hager was warm and friendly the crowd, which included transplant patients and their families, as well as Richmond women in fancy hats.  She showed genuine interest in the former group while mixing easily with the latter crowd.  All in all, a lovely visit.

See my entire interview with Mrs. Bush Hager below:

Btw… You can follow Matt Butner on Twitter. I promise you will enjoy his witty take on life and work.
