Yet another Bush enters politics
(03-05 13:20)

Yet another Bush may be rising among the ranks in politics in the southern US state of Texas.
The 37-year-old son of former Florida governor Jeb Bush easily defeated businessman David Watts to secure the Republican nomination for Texas land commissioner Tuesday.
Bush's mother, Columba, is from Mexico. His grandfather and uncle are former Presidents George H.W. and George W. Bush, who also was a Texas governor.
George P. Bush, a Fort Worth attorney, has worked to tamp down lofty expectations. But the Texas Republican Party has touted him and his political royalty surname as key to wooing Hispanic voters.
Bush becomes the favorite in November against former El Paso Democratic Mayor John Cook.
He has raised US$3.5-plus million _ an unheard of sum for land commissioner, who administers state-owned lands and mineral resources.—AP
