George P. Bush Talks to KFYO’s Matt Crow About Land Commissioner Race


George P. Bush, Republican candidate for Texas Land Commissioner, was in Lubbock today for a fundraiser.  The Republican Party of Texas CRC fundraiser was held at the Hillcrest Country Club. KFYO’s Matt Crow had a chance to speak with Bush after the event.

Bush said he has three priority areas of focus: education, energy and veterans affairs. “Honoring our veterans, that’s essentially what my race (against David Watts) is coming down to,” Bush said.

Crow asked Bush’ what do veterans tell you when you’re campaigning?’ “I think a lot of folks, a lot of Texans are surprised to learn that I have served,” Bush said. “I have been in for six years, continue to serve, I hope to continue wearing the uniform. I think they’re surprised by the common experiences we’ve had.”

Finally, Bush was asked for his opinion on Attorney General Eric Holder suing Texas to force pre-clearance for changes to voting related laws. “My viewpoint is that…  I believe in the Tenth Amendment. I feel that the Voter ID and what we have on our books here in Texas needs to be respected by the Federal Government. I am encouraged to see what the Governor (Rick Perry) and the Attorney General (Greg Abbott) have said on the issue. And as Texans we need to fight back.”
