George Bush may run for governor of Texas. This is not a repeat from 1994

George Prescott Bush, the eldest son of former Florida governor Jeb Bush, is gearing up to run for a little-known but powerful office in a state where his family already is a political dynasty and where his Hispanic roots could help extend a stranglehold on power Republicans have enjoyed for two decades.

The 36-year-old Fort Worth attorney says he is close to settling on campaigning for Texas land commissioner next year. He doesn't expect to make up his mind until he knows what Texas Gov. Rick Perry, a fellow Republican, decides to do.

"We for sure are running, the question is the office," Bush told The Associated Press during the first interview about his political future since filing paperwork in November to seek elected office in Texas.

Land commissioner traditionally has been a steppingstone to higher office, but Bush said little about any plans to eventually become a national political force.

So he may run for land commissioner unless Rick Perry retires, then he'll run for Governor?  His vague comment leaves my mind a wanderin'.  I've been expecting this for a whole, although I thought it would be something in Florida.
