Texas primary is George P. Bush’s biggest test yet in GOP

LAKEWAY, Texas (AP) – Republican George P. Bush of Texas is in a fight to keep himself and his family name in office.

The 45-year-old son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is running for attorney general in Texas’ first-in-the-nation primary Tuesday.

Bush is currently Texas’ land commissioner and was overwhelmingly elected in 2014.

But he’s in a far tougher and crowded race to unseat Republican Attorney General Ken Paxton.

Paxton is running for a third term and remains formidable in the Texas GOP despite a felony indictment and an FBI investigation into allegations of corruption.

He’s broadly denied wrongdoing.

The race will got to May runoff if no one captures 50% of the vote.
