Bush-Paxton race will be brutal
George P. Bush is ready to step up a gear and made it official on Wednesday by announcing that he would face Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton in the Attorney General’s Republican primary.
The campaign between the two candidates may well be the most brutal primary we’ll see on the Republican side. If Bush loses, his political career could come to an abrupt end. Ditto for Paxton if he loses.
Both have luggage that they will have to deal with. For Bush, it will be his handling of the Alamo project and the fact that he upset a lot of people with the way he handled the project. And yes, there is also his last name. Bush’s last name can immediately turn people away from his campaign, just as it might get people to know him. Paxton has his own problems. Paxton has been indicted for securities fraud most of his time in office and has continued to say he is innocent. Paxton took office in 2015. He is also the subject of an FBI investigation after former aides claimed Paxton abused his position to help a friend and donor. Paxton also claimed he was also innocent of the charges.
Bush will aim to make integrity and scandals a huge talking point in his campaign. The two probably agree on many points and both want the approval of former President Trump. So this race could come down to confidence and character.
One thing Bush should stop accusing Paxton of? Be a career politician. That may be true, but when your last name is Bush and you come from a political dynasty, everyone besides the Kennedys is a political outsider to you.
