George P. Bush (R) has won his GOP primary in Texas, setting him up to win a statewide position and possibly bigger things down the line.
With 3 percent of results in, Bush led with 75 percent of the vote. The Associated Press has called the race.
The Dallas-based lawyer's mother is Mexican-American, and he speaks Spanish fluently, a big advantage toward making inroads with Texas's fast-growing Hispanic community. His family ties have helped him raise huge sums for the race. Some Republicans have already begun discussing him as a potential gubernatorial candidate in a few years.
If Bush wins the general election, a likely scenario in the heavily Republican state, he'd renew the legacy of Bushes in office. There was at least one Bush in elected office from 1981 through 2008.
