Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush "seriously considering" run for attorney general, lays out

Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush "seriously considering" run for attorney general, lays out case against Ken Paxton

by Patrick Svitek, Texas Tribune


Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush said Thursday he is "seriously considering" running for attorney general in 2022 and detailed how he would challenge the incumbent, embattled fellow Republican Ken Paxton.

"There have been some serious allegations levied against the current attorney general," Bush said in an interview with Dallas radio host Mark Davis. "Personally I think that the top law enforcement official in Texas needs to be above reproach."

Bush, the grandson of former President George H.W. Bush and nephew for President George W. Bush, went on to say a Paxton challenge would not be centered on "conservative credentials" but how the incumbent has run his office. "I think character matters and integrity matters," Bush said.

The land commissioner, currently in his second term, has for months kept open the possibility of running for another statewide office in 2022 including attorney general but his remarks Thursday offered the starkest indication yet that he is focused on Paxton. Bush did not give a timeline for a decision on the race beyond saying he is currently focused on the legislative session and will visit with voters afterward. The session ends May 31.

While it difficult to imagine getting anyone worse than Ken Paxton, I am wary of giving another member of the Bush family a platform to grow his career.
