George P. Bush Eyes Land Commissioner Run

Immediately after the election last week, George P. Bush (son of Jeb) filed to run for office in Texas, though it was unclear which one he had his eye on.

Now, via a fundraising letter his father penned, obtained by the Miami Herald, it seems that office is Land Commissioner.

"While the election is in 2014, it is important to show early financial support, particularly in a state as big as Texas," writes the former Florida governor. "The office that George is considering running for is Land Commissioner which overseas the mineral rights, commercial real estate owned and sovereign submerged lands of the State of Texas as well as veterans affairs and historic archives."

After singing his son's praises in the letter, he adds, "Ok, what can I say? I am proud of my son."

Still, though Bush is raising money, the office he's seeking is apparently not set in stone: His political strategist tells the Associated Press that "no firm decision has been made."
