Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton won his runoff election on Tuesday against Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush.
Paxton was leading 65.8% to 34.2% for George P. Bush.
This was a major blow to the Bush dynasty. Paxton was endorsed by President Donald Trump.
NBC News reported:
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, a close ally of former President Donald Trump, fended off a primary challenge from Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush in Tuesday’s runoff election.
Bush — the son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and nephew of former President George W. Bush — is now the first member of his family to lose a statewide election in Texas since his grandfather, former President George H.W. Bush, lost the state’s 1980 Republican presidential primary to Ronald Reagan.
“There’s Bush burnout,” Derek Ryan, a Texas Republican data guru, said in an interview. “A majority of Republicans still love and admire W. and his dad, but they probably think it’s time to move on to someone not named Bush.”
