George P. Bush's march to assume the mantle of his politically storied family hit a small snag in Austin when the largest daily in Texas' capital city endorsed his little-known opponent, David Watts.
The Austin American-Statesman cited a weak field in the race for the Republican nomination for Texas land commissioner before it anointed the East Texas its preferred candidate over the son of a governor, nephew of a president, and grandson of another president.

Personally, he doesn’t deserve it, just because he is a Bush.
Oh...and a description of what that role entails:
Jeb is an amnesty advocate, which is why I voted against JR.
There’s a weekly there. Most of it’s ads were “women seeking women” type. I’m sure the internet killed that.
But the Austin American Statesman is an endorsement you don’t want.
