at his sight

I want to know the meaning of "at his sight" in below phrase in website.

He was a popular former governor of Florida and a Bush, and Bushes are supposed to win nominations. Other candidates would cower at his sight and clear the field for fear of retribution. These are things that Murphy, the donors, Republican operatives, Bush himself, and us dolts in the media tended to believe.

Link is here.

Hope some kind person will kindly explain to me by using some para-phrase explanation.
