    Former Texas Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson says he wants his old job back. Patterson, who served three terms as land commissioner before running fourth in a four-way Republican primary contest for lieutenant governor in 2014, said Friday he will challenge one-term Land Commissioner George P. Bush in the March GOP primary.

    One member of “Team Bush” has lined up behind Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. Trump lampooned former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush as “low energy” throughout the Republican president primary season. He also criticized policy decisions of former President George W. Bush regarding the 9/11 terrorist attacks and the Iraq War. As a result, the Bush family has steadfastly refrained from endorsing Trump in his presidential campaign. That changed Saturday, when Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush urged Texas Republicans to support Trump. George P. Bush, 40, is Jeb Bush’s son.

(and …Please Clap) All indications are that Jeb! plans to stay in the #NeverTrump camp. Just a few weeks ago in an interview with Nicole Wallace, Jeb said this: ‘I can’t...

    Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush is asking Texas Republicans to support the Republican presidential nominee — though he has not endorsed Donald Trump, the Texas Tribune reports. Bush said it’s time to put aside lingering tensions from the primary — in which Trump defeated his father, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush — to back the nominee. “From Team Bush, it's a bitter pill to swallow, but you know what? You get back up and you help the man that won, and you make sure that we stop Hillary Clinton," Bush said, according to video provided by someone in the...

    Much of the media is treating the end of Jeb Bush's campaign as a moment to eulogize the Bush family dynasty. Some are trampling on the family grave, while others are being a bit nostalgic. But in most of these pieces, an ember of hope for the legacy is missing. There's a fourth generation already in office in Texas - Jeb's own son, George Prescott. George P. is getting some attention on social media, where pundits have pointed out that maybe it's too soon to call an end to the Bush family involvement in presidential politics.

The newspaper also reported that Barbara Bush wants her son to help stop Donald Trump's seemingly steady march toward the GOP nomination

    The owners of the popular Galveston County fishing spot known as Rollover Pass in Galveston County are accusing Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush of hypocrisy for seeking to take their land while casting himself as a champion of private property rights. The Gilchrist Community Association, which is the caretaker of the property owned by the Gulf Coast Rod, Reel and Gun Club, says it has "declared war" on the General Land Office over the contested Rollover Pass. Association president Ted Vega said Bush's actions contradict his December push in support of residents fighting the federal Bureau of Land Management...

    LEXINGTON, S.C. -- George P. Bush is talking up his dad -- White House hopeful Jeb Bush -- but knows some gentle ribbing awaits about his grandfather and uncle, two former Republican presidents also named George. "We are lucky to have George Bush here. That's George P. Bush," said state Sen. Katrina Shealy, introducing the Texas land commissioner to the crowd at the Lizard's Thicket restaurant. The next-generation bearer of the powerful political name has been helping relatives run since age 3, when he clutched a balloon and sported a campaign T-shirt as grandfather George H.W. Bush launched his first...

    George P. Bush stood in front of the lectern with its official seal. Behind him, flags bracketed the picture of a majestic white building. For just under 10 minutes, Bush talked about all that he had accomplished in the whirlwind of his first 100 days in office. Bush is in his first term as Texas land commissioner, the seal on the podium is that of the General Land Office, and the building depicted behind him is the mid-19th Century General Land Office building that now serves as the Capitol Visitors Center. But looking at Wednesday’s tableau, you could be forgiven...

    George P. Bush took office as state land commissioner in a low-key ceremony at the Texas Capitol on Friday. - I don't yet know a whole lot about George P. Bush, but he seems (far) more electable than his father. Jeb should stand aside, and let his son take the lead.

    Yesterday ABC's This Week (10/26/14) profiled George P. Bush, a Texas land commissioner candidate who is a grandson and nephew of the more famous George Bushes.  It was part of This Week's "Closer Look" series, which seems to be intended as a place for upbeat profiles of political heavyweights. But a brief exchange about climate change showed the limits of this kind of journalism. Given its impact on land issues, correspondent Jonathan Karl had good reason to ask Bush about climate change. KARL: As land commissioner, he'll oversee millions of acres of oil and natural gas reserves. But he also...

    Jeb Bush is throwing cold water on his son’s statement that the former Florida governor will more than likely run for the 2016 presidential nomination. In an interview that aired Thursday on MSNBC, Bush — backstage at a campaign event in Colorado on Wednesday for Republican Senate candidate Cory Gardner and gubernatorial candidate Bob Beauprez — said that his son’s opinions didn’t necessarily reflect his own. “He’s got an opinion. He didn’t talk to me,” the former Republican governor said, when asked about George P. Bush’s statement last Sunday that it’s a better than 50-50 chance his father will run...

    The Bush family doesn't waste any time indoctrinating the next generation into the world of politics. George H.W. Bush's baby great-grandson Prescott joined his father George P. Bush in the voting booth yesterday as daddy runs for Texas land commissioner. Baby Prescott was swept up by his mom Amanda just as dad went into the booth - but he still got an 'I Voted' sticker.

    George P. Bush hopes to be the next in the political family dynasty to hold public office, he said in an interview with Fox News Latino on Saturday. Bush, who generally has avoided discussing his plans for his own political future, said that possibly “in the next election cycle” he’ll focus on holding public office in Texas, where he lives. Some political insiders in Texas have been raising 2014 as a year when Bush might figure prominently as a candidate. Though he did not get specific about what office he is eying, political observers have mentioned Texas State Attorney General...

    Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul asked for some advice from Texas GOP rising star George P. Bush on how to reach out to Hispanic voters — and got a simple recommendation: Show up, Politico reported. “Really I wanted to get advice from him, as much as anything, about how the party grows in Texas and states with large Hispanic populations,” Paul, who's considered a possible GOP candidate for president in 2016, said after stumping for a state senate candidate in Dallas. Bush, whose mother is from Mexico, has pushed for expanding the GOP reach to Hispanics. Paul said Bush recommended...

    AUSTIN, Texas — George Prescott Bush stood among the ladies at the Concho Valley Republican Women’s meeting in San Angelo as they spoke about how attractive the contender for the Texas General Land Office commissioner was. A Hispanic woman joked in Spanish to him that the boyish man of 37 with a broad smile looked better in person than on TV. George P. Bush is the nephew of former President George W. Bush and the son of Jeb Bush, the former governor of Florida. At the meeting in late September he had already been campaigning for 11 months, having delivered...

    George P. Bush, a son of a governor and a nephew and grandson to U.S. presidents, has filed to run statewide in Texas, the latest member of the powerful political family to seek elected office. Bush, 37, the son of former Florida Governor Jeb Bush and his Mexican-born wife, Columba, is seen by some as a transformative figure - a Hispanic candidate for a Republican Party that wants to appeal to the growing and increasingly influential electorate of Latino voters. Bush filed on Tuesday to run for Texas Land Commissioner, a position which, among other duties, manages the Alamo in...

    George P. See. I don't even have to use the last name and many of you know who this is, though his tio, W, has him beat on name abbreviation. Many calculate that P is a future governor, attorney general, land commissioner or, apparently, holder of whatever statewide office presents itself first in Texas. And someday? You didn't hear it here first — President P. But, of course, were it not for the surname-that-need-not-be-mentioned, he'd have to work much harder to be mentioned. No, that's not quite right. Mexican roots also burnish his star stature. He represents the perfect mixture...
