    Actress Theresa Saldana who played the commissioner's wife on '90s cop drama "The Commish" and was the victim in a highly-publicized stabbing has died ... TMZ has learned. Saldana had been hospitalized with an unknown illness and died Monday at Cedars-Sinai ... according to a member of her family. The actress made headlines in 1982 after being stabbed by a deranged fan outside her L.A. home.

    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 63-year-old Bush announced he was dropping out last Feb. 20 after getting disappointing results in South Carolina. -snip- So is the Bush family dynasty really over?

Now, with Bush's bid for the Republican presidential nomination in deep trouble, Bush the father may well start wondering if a humiliating defeat could harm the political future of his son, Texas Land Commissioner George P.

    At first glance, Hector Valle would seem like an odd fit for the state agency that oversees all public land in Texas. When the 37-year-old applied to join the Texas General Land Office last October, saying he wanted to be the agency's "special counsel" - a job that did not exist - his only work experience was as a Dallas anti-gang prosecutor. Valle had a special qualification, however: He had gone to law school with George P. Bush, the front-runner in what was then an upcoming election for land commissioner. Two weeks later, Bush won. Six days after that, Valle...

The George P. Bush era appears ready to begin. About a quarter-century after first speaking at the Republican National Convention, and two years after filing paperwork to run for a then-unspecified state position, the 38-year-old grandson and nephew of presidents is expected to easily be elected land commissioner Tuesday. And while he has maintained a relatively low profile this year, holding few public events and focusing...

But with Election Day fast approaching, Bush said it's probably too late for Republicans to pivot away from the party's conservative base and seize the political high ground on the immigration...

    In the end, George P. Bush followed his grandmother’s advice. He worked hard to establish himself in the business world, as former first lady Barbara Bush suggested, before considering a bid for public office. Now at age 37, Bush said he’s ready and focused “like a laser” on winning his bid to become Texas land commissioner. “From Day One, my grandmother’s advice was to succeed in your own right and make a name for yourself,” Bush told the Star-Telegram on Tuesday. “I feel on a personal and professional level, this is finally the right time” to run for office. Especially...

    “P! P! P! Over here, P! Throw it here!” The adolescent voices were shrill and insistent, like those of any group of teenage boys playing in front yards. And about the only word that was clearly identifiable was the same consonant that kept repeating and echoing in the predominantly Latino neighborhood in the San Gabriel Valley east of Los Angeles. “P! P! P!” P was a tall, dark, gangly youth who was throwing passes to a group of Hispanic boys over whom he towered not so much in height as in sheer charisma, seeming dripping from his face in the...

    Sen. Rand Paul on Friday met with George P. Bush, a rising star in Texas GOP politics, to discuss how to broaden the Republican Party’s appeal in diverse communities. “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 (R-Ky.) told POLITICO backstage after stumping for a state senate candidate here. Bush recommended “showing up” in those communities, Paul said. The senator, who has said he is seriously considering a 2016 presidential bid, often talks about the importance of growing the Republican Party, and...

    George P. Bush said on Tuesday that “it’s never too late” for Mitt Romney to take a leadership role in the immigration debate, but he acknowledged Republicans were outflanked by President Obama’s election-year decision to allow hundreds of illegal immigrants to remain in the country without fear of deportation. “Governor Romney had an opportunity to get in front of the president on the issue,” said Mr. Bush, 36, the son of former Gov. Jeb Bush of Florida. “But the president clearly has taken the initiative on it.” Mr. Bush, who is urging younger voters to increase their participation in the...

    George P. Bush, nephew of George W. Bush and grandson of George H. W. Bush, said he has “reservations” and “concerns” about the Republican Party’s rhetoric on immigration. In a sit-down with CNN reporters and producers Tuesday, Bush said that he and other Republicans wish the party would “return to George W. Bush on this issue,” referring to the former president’s bipartisan push to reform the nation’s immigration policy. But with Election Day fast approaching, Bush said it’s probably too late for Republicans to pivot away from the party’s conservative base and seize the political high ground on the immigration...

    Land commissioner candidate George P. Bush has some pointed words for fellow Republicans who denigrate Hispanics. “If we're going to be successful and be considered credible in the Hispanic community, we’ve got to denounce some of the ignorant statements that are made about Hispanics and the contributions we make," he told the Tribune's Alexa Ura. His comments come on the heels of a controversial statement on the Denton County Republican Party's website that referred to the expected Democratic top of the ticket as “Abortion Barbie with Hispanic Sen. Leticia Van de Putte as her running mate.”

    It's been no secret that Jeb Bush's son, George P. Bush, has an interest in political office, and now he's taking steps to run for Texas Land Commissioner, which is a much more important office in the Lonestar state than it might sound. Here's a letter former Gov. Jeb Bush sent out seeking support for his son: November 13th, 2012 Dear Jeb Alumni member: Last week, George P. opened a campaign account to explore the opportunity to run for statewide office in Texas.

    “It’s not Air Force One, but it will do,” George P. Bush said with a laugh as he boarded a custom bus for a state-wide tour in his bid to become the next George Bush to put his stamp on Texas politics. Bush, who announced his candidacy for Texas Land Commissioner last March, began his bus tour Tuesday in Pasadena at the South East Harris County Republican Headquarters. -snip- "This is probably the youngest and most exciting Republican candidate the party has seen probably in about 30 years,” said Rice University professor and KHOU Political Analyst Bob Stein.

    In case you haven’t heard, George Bush wants to be your next Land Commissioner. No, the former two-term president is not returning to the public sphere. But his nephew, Fort Worth resident George Prescott Bush, is seeking the statewide office soon to be vacated by Jerry Patterson. Bush is one of two Republican primary candidates. Being part of a political dynasty is a double-edged sword. Many will be skeptical of a fourth-generation politician whose name and fortune would be enough to carry him to victory. Fortunately, Bush has talents and experience to recommend him to the position, which serves schools...

    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...

    The slam against George P. Bush and his run for the GOP Texas land commissioner nomination is that he is campaigning on his dynastic name and harbors hopes for higher office. To which the easy responses are: It's a fine political pedigree in Texas, if not always on the national stage, and he has a record of personal accomplishments in business and the military in any case. Also, if ambition were a deal-killer, the state would have no elected officials. And there's this: Bush, 37, offers hope for a bridge to more thoughtful, inclusive politics as the state's demographic profile...
