Texas Land Commissioner Candidate George P. Bush Said Veterans Affairs Are A Major Focus Of Campaign [AUDIO]
On this week's edition of The Matt Crow Show, George P. Bush, Texas Land Commissioner candidate and son of former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, spoke with Matt Crow about his campaign for Texas Land Commissioner.
Bush said that one of his major reasons for running for Texas Land Commissioner was veterans affairs. Specifically, he wanted to continue the work of the Veterans Land Board, which provides low-interests home and land loans to military veterans. Bush said that the VLB does great work, but not many veterans are even aware it exists.
"This part of the agency has been doing great. Since it was created, it has been cash-flow positive, it hasn't cost taxpayers, but it has provided this great resource to Texas vets. In this study that you'll find, and in other studies here in the state you'll find that a lot of vets, however, are not aware of programs like this. And Texas is unique in the sense that not only does the state own a lot of our land as opposed to it being controlled by the Feds, but we [also] provide this wonderful benefit. "
Bush also said that he would like to be involved in veterans job training and suicide prevention, even though the Texas Land Commissioner's office doesn't deal directly in these affairs.
Bush also spoke about his own military service in Operation Enduring Freedom, as well as life with Jeb Bush. He also mentioned that, at the moment, he did not know whether or not his father would be a contender in the 2016 presidential race, but hinted that he may say something after the 2014 midterms.
