Another George Bush in Politics?
Those who recall George P. Bush’s convention speech (not to mention family history) will not be surprised at the following (via the AP): George P. Bush weighing run in Texas.

"We for sure are running, the question is the office," Bush told The Associated Press during the first interview about his political future since filing paperwork in November to seek elected office in Texas.
Land commissioner traditionally has been a steppingstone to higher office, but Bush said little about any plans to eventually become a national political force.

Some have speculated that Bush could challenge Perry for governor — and even if he doesn’t, what Perry decides will trigger political dominos falling.
