George P. Bush Raises $1.3 Million In 8 Weeks
AUSTIN (AP) – George P. Bush has raised more than $1.3 million in the barely eight weeks since he announced he would run for office in Texas.
Campaign manager Trey Newton said late Monday that a report showing Bush took in $1,350,489 would be submitted the following day to the Texas Ethics Commission.
Bush hasn’t decided which office he will seek next year, but he’s leaning toward land commissioner.
His first contribution came from his father, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush for $50,000. His uncle, former President George W. Bush, also contributed $50,000.
In all, there were 449 contributions from 29 states.
Some 65 percent of Bush’s contributions came from Texas, while donations from Florida accounted for 26 percent.
That means another 9 percent came from the rest of the country
