Biden And Bush Names Could Grace New Del. School

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — Biden is a maybe, but the name Bush will definitely be going up on the side of a new Delaware school.

If the voters say so, the new Wilmington elementary and preschool school could be called the Joseph R. Biden Jr. Elementary School & Bush Early Education Center. Brandywine School District officials are letting the public vote on the name and the vice president is one of the finalists.

The first part of the name is up to the voters, but school officials say the Bush name will be part of the eventual name.

However, the school will not be named for the former Republican presidents, but for former Delaware educator Charles W. Bush, said Alexis Andrianopoulos, a school district spokeswoman.
