FRISCO (AP) – On a recent evening, George P. Bush was telling a packed room of wealthy North Texans how he got his start in politics.

It was May 1979 and the then 3-year-old was in a Houston park, clutching a balloon and watching his grandfather, George H.W. Bush, announce his first campaign for president.

George P. Bush is now 37 and says he’s more than just a famous surname. Both his grandfather and uncle were presidents; his father, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, may run for the White House in 2016.

George P. Bush told The Associated Press it’s a legacy that he embraces.

Records show the Republican has raised $3.3 million since November even though no Democratic candidate has emerged in the race for state land commissioner.
