Jeb's son eyes Texas Land Commissioner post

14

November

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. I am writing to ask that you consider making a personal contribution as he begins his quest for public service.

While the election is in 2014, it is important to show early financial support, particularly in a state as big as Texas. The office that George is considering running for is Land Commissioner which overseas the mineral rights, commercial real estate owned and sovereign submerged lands of the State of Texas as well as veterans affairs and historic archives.

George’s experience and skills match the job. In business, he has helped build a successful real estate fund business, and practiced law. In addition, he currently serves as an Intelligence Officer in the Navy Reserves. In that capacity, he served in Afghanistan for nine months last year.

Politically, George has earned the right to run by being Chairman of MAVPac, which is now a national organization, Chairman of Hispanic
Republicans of Texas, an active surrogate of the Romney/Ryan ticket and Deputy Finance Chairman of the Republican Party of Texas.
Ok, what can I say? I am proud of my son. I hope you will write a personal check to George P. Bush Campaign, 604 E. 4th St., Suite 201, Ft. Worth, TX 76102.

Respectfully,

Jeb
