The newest Texas politician from the Bush family has been speaking to Hispanic groups across Texas, and made his stop in Lubbock Friday.
The son of former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, and the nephew of President George W. Bush, George P. Bush was the keynote speaker of Fiestas Patrias at the Civic Center. Touching on some "kitchen table issues", Bush said he hopes to unite the Hispanic community and conservatives throughout the state.
"Well, in terms of Hispanic completion in our education system here in Texas, we can do a lot better, and expect more from our teachers, our administrators, our school districts," Bush said. "Because Texans deserve better, and that's an issue, I think, that all Texans recognize and realize we need to do a better job of."
Bush announced his candidacy for Texas Land Commissioner in March. In addition to education, he said his core issues also include veteran affairs and helping Texans lead in energy reform.
