There is another member of the Bush family on the rise in Texas.

George P. Bush, the son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and nephew of former President George W. Bush, emerged victorious Tuesday in the GOP primary race for land commissioner, a powerful post in the Lone Star State.

Mr. Bush, a 37-year-old Forth Worth lawyer, is Mexican-American and speaks fluent Spanish.

“We don’t have to change our conservative principles to win, we just need to change our tactics,” Mr. Bush said in his victory speech, according to the Associated Press.

Mr. Bush is now favored to win the seat this fall when he faces off against Democratic nominee and former El Paso Mayor John Cook.
