Bush family scion ‘seriously considering’ a bid for Texas Attorney General


The Bush family has deep Texan political roots and George P. Bush is no exception to the rule. However, he does differ from the rest of the Republicans in his family in his support for former president Donald Trump. Now, the grandson of George H.W. Bush has decided to most probably run for the post of Attorney General of Texas.


On Friday, Ash Wright, who is Bush’s senior adviser, told PEOPLE in a statement that “he is considering a run for attorney general.” He also said that Bush was concerned about the Texas’ attorney general Paxton, who he said was “plagued by ethical and integrity issues.”


The 44-year old Bush had great political credentials as he is the grandson of former president George H.W. Bush. He is also the nephew of the former president George W. Bush. He is the son of former Florida governor Jeb Bush.


In the beginning of this week, Bush told Fox News that he was “taking a very serious look” at a bid to run for governorship in Texas. He said that he would take a decision soon.


On Thursday morning, he was interviewed by local Dallas radio host Mark Davis. He commented that there had been a few serious allegations put against the current attorney general. He also said that the personally thought that the top law enforcement official in Texas “needs to be above reproach.”


Ken Paxton is up for re-election in 2022. The Austin American-Statesman had reported that former staffers had accused Paxton of being involved in an alleged bribery scandal. There is also another case against him for alleged security fraud according to a report from the Texan Tribune.


George P. Bush is a Trump backer. Trump had referred to him as “the only Bush that likes me” and has also called him a “great guy” in 2019. He is the only member of the Bush family who is holding public office. His run for the gubernatorial elections in Texas, if he is endorsed by Trump, may cause a mild shake up in the staunch Republican Bush family.
