The son of Jeb Bush and his Latina wife, Mexican-born Colomba Garnica Gallo, George Prescott Bush told Fox News Latino that he’s beginning his political career by running for Texas Land Commissioner next year. He’s already filed the paperwork to get the process started this year.
Even though the title of “Texas Land Commissioner” may seem like a small & insignificant role, it is actually an important title — the land commissioner administers state-owned lands and mineral resources, and it’s a post that can be a stepping stone to higher office in Texas. Because he is a Spanish-speaker, as well as an attorney, he is considered a “rising star” in the conservative Latino movement. (The irony isn’t lost on anyone here…)
