The Bush dynasty has fallen.
George P. Bush, the son of Jeb Bush, lost the GOP primary for Texas Attorney General to Ken Paxton, an ally of President Donald Trump.
From NBC News:
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.”
