The Bush Dynasty Has Come To An End In Latest Primary Race
(TargetLiberty.org) – Republican Texas Attorney General candidate George P. Bush attempted to unseat Texas AG Ken Paxton during the primary election runoff on May 24. Although he had the Bush name behind him as former President George W. Bush’s nephew and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush’s son, it wasn’t enough to secure the win. In fact, his family name may have hurt his chances in the race.
A Bush family member has held a political seat since 1981. George P. Bush losing tonight in Texas breaks that streak. The Bush dynasty is over.

Former President Donald Trump has been vocal about his criticisms of the Bush family, backing Paxton in the race for attorney general. As America has witnessed during this election season, the previous US leader’s endorsement has been giving many candidates a boost. Paxton stated he expected to “win on Tuesday,” and he was right.
Bush conceded the race on election night by thanking those who supported him, including his family, and wishing the best for Texans across the state. Although he was disappointed in his loss, he encouraged the people of Texas to continue fighting for what’s right. He also touched on his sadness about the deadly elementary school shooting the same day.
During the runoff, Bush garnered 32.1% of the vote, giving Paxton a winning 67.9%, with 98.7% of the votes counted for a seemingly easy victory for the incumbent.
