Former members of the George W. Bush administration have formed a super PAC to support Joe Biden's White House run, according to paperwork filed with the Federal Election Commission.

The super PAC, known as 43 Alumni For Biden, lists Karen Kirksey, a former Treasury Department official in the Bush administration, as custodian of records and treasurer. No other officers or members are listed, and requests seeking comment had not been returned to Newsmax.

The filing was first reported by The Hill.

The "43" in the name is an apparent reference to Bush's designation as the nation's 43rd president. He and his father, President George H.W. Bush, often referred to themselves as "Bush 41" and "Bush 43" or simply by the numbers alone.

The filing is dated Monday, but signed by Kirksey and filed on Tuesday.

President Donald Trump has had a contentious relationship with the Bush family and many of his supporters ever since the 2016 election when George W. Bush's brother, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, sought the nomination against Trump, and was seen early on as the establishment favorite. He earned one of the eventual president's famous nicknames "Low Energy Jeb" for his inability to rouse enthusiasm from his supporters.

Trump has more recently quarreled with George W. Bush, asking in early May when the former president called for unity in the fight against the coronarvirus: "Oh bye the way, I appreciate the message from former President Bush, but where was he during Impeachment calling for putting partisanship aside."
