There’s Another George Bush
They just seem to keep coming. Now another George Bush is in the political scene.
His name is George P. Bush. He is running for land commissioner in Texas.
George Prescott Bush is an attorney, U.S. Navy Reserve officer, real estate investor, and politician. He is the eldest son of former Governor of Florida Jeb Bush, the nephew of former President George W. Bush, and the grandson of former President George H. W. Bush. George Prescott is also named for his great-grandfather, Senator Prescott Bush.
Bush’s mother, Columba Garnica Gallo, is a naturalized citizen of the U.S. originally from Mexico. At the age of 12, Bush spoke before the 1988 Republican National Convention, which nominated his grandfather. He also spoke at the 1992 convention, when H.W. Bush was renominated. In his speeches he stated support for his uncle’s position in favor of comprehensive immigration reform.
On Tuesday, Bush officially filed papers with the Texas Secretary of State to run for Texas Land Commissioner.
