Bush scion with bright political future poised to control Texas oil and gas contracts

AUSTIN, Texas -- George P. Bush is trying to add to his family's political legacy with a run for Texas land commissioner, a powerful post that controls the state's oil and gas contracts. It's his first race. Assuming he wins -- Republicans have not lost a statewide election here since 1994 -- it probably won't be his last. Every land commissioner in the past three decades has gone on to run for lieutenant governor or governor.
