Bush re-elected as land commissioner

🕐 1 min read

George P. Bush won re-election as Texas land commissioner, which oversees oil and natural gas exploration rights on 13 million acres of public land.

The grandson and nephew of former presidents and son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, George P. Bush topped underfunded Democrat Miguel Suazo.

The 42-year-old fluent Spanish speaker is considered a rising Republican star. But Bush has drawn criticism from some Texas conservatives for leading a makeover of the Alamo that some complain is too politically correct.

He also has led Texas’ housing recovery after last summer’s Hurricane Harvey — and been dogged by complains things are moving too slowly.

Fellow Republicans Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick and Comptroller Glenn Hegar also easily clinched re-election Tuesday.
