BUSH UPS THE ANTE
No, we’re not talking about former Presidents George W. Bush, George H.W. Bush or former presidential hopeful Jeb Bush. We’re talking about George P. Bush, son of Jeb, and current commissioner of the Texas General Land Office, a surprisingly powerful position in the Lone Star State.
There has been persistent chatter that the younger Mr. Bush, 41, the new custodian of the Bush family’s political dynasty, boasting both a sturdy resume and track record. He is also an attorney, a Naval Reserve officer, real estate investor, energy consultant — and has announced he will seek re-election to his office, continuing his mission, he says, “to turn a bold, conservative agenda for Texas into concrete conservative results.”
Among other things, Mr. Bush says he has fought off big government and radical environmentalists, he advises, and stood up for pro-life values, military veterans, education and the preservation of the Alamo.
