George P. Bush
The biggest shake up of Texas politics in decades is two weeks away.
Jeb Bush headed deep into the plains of West Texas on Tuesday, eager to campaign for his favored candidate for the office of state land commissioner. That would be his son, George P. Bush.
The latest scion of one of America’s most powerful political dynasties is trying to convince voters he’s something other than what his famous surname suggests.
Sick of losing on Election Day, they huddled candidates on their 2014 statewide ticket in a hotel ballroom and bristled at being outspent and outnumbered by political rivals in Texas who they talked up as sophisticated and savvy.
Texas is getting another Bush on the ballot.
George P. Bush is running for state land commissioner, a post unfamiliar to most Texans, because he says it best suits his skills, not because it could launch him to bigger things in the largest Republican-leaning state.
George Prescott Bush is expected to make his first public speech as a political candidate in Texas.
George Prescott Bush filed the official paperwork Tuesday to run for Texas land commissioner next year, hoping to use a little-known but powerful post to continue his family’s political dynasty in one of the country’s most-conservative states.
