AUSTIN, TX – Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush announced his candidacy for Texas Attorney General Wednesday.
In a tweet to supporters, the nephew of former President George W. Bush said, "I’ve spent the last six years putting my background as a businessman, attorney, teacher, and Veteran to work for Texans. I’ve gotten results, and I’m ready to do more. I’m excited to announce that I’m running for Attorney General. Let’s build a better future for Texas, together."
Bush was elected Land Commissioner in 2014 and again in 2018. He worked on campaigns for former President George W. Bush and former Florida Governor and his father Jeb Bush. He also supported former President Donald Trump.
As Land Commissioner, Bush headed an effort to reconstruct Alamo Plaza in San Antonio which was ultimately unsuccessful.
Bush is married to Amanda (Williams) Bush who is a native of San Angelo.
