George P. Bush makes stop in Tyler

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - George P. Bush made a stop in Tyler on Tuesday morning, part of a fundraising tour through Texas.

Bush, a Fort Worth native, is running for Texas Land Commissioner and spoke with KLTV at a fundraiser event at Willow Brook Country Club.

"This is my first run for public office and that's what I've been talking about on the trail: fresh ideas, new perspective on issues in Austin," said Bush. "I've been involved in a few campaigns, whether with my family or other candidates for office, but this is my first time on the ballot and we're out there asking for the vote."

Bush, a high school teacher and naval officer, is running to replace current Texas Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson, who is running for lieutenant governor.
