The Bush family celebrated George P. Bush’s primary victory for Texas land commissioner Tuesday night.
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R), the father of the younger Bush, said he was proud of his son early Wednesday morning after his win.
His win in the general election could continue the streak of the Bush family in public office. No Bush has served since 2008, but prior to that, at least one member of the family had held elected office since 1981.
Former President George H.W. Bush also congratulated his grandson’s victory Tuesday night.
We couldn't be prouder of @georgepbush tonight. A good man and hard worker, he'll do a great job if elected the next TX Land Commissioner.— George Bush (@GeorgeHWBush) March 5, 2014
Jeb Bush, a potential candidate for president in 2016, had stumped for his son ahead of the primary and was active on Twitter encouraging people to vote.
