– Texas votes for George Bush once again (RT, Nov 5, 2014):
George Bush won statewide office in Texas again. But he’s not the former president, and he’s not the governor-elect. George Prescott Bush will become the next state land commissioner after a landslide victory.
Bush won the office with nearly 60 percent of the vote, AFP reported. The Texas land commissioner, “oversees matters that range from state lands and coastal issues to veterans affairs,” according to the official website ‒ including lucrative mineral rights for oil and gas in the state. The money is used to fund public schools in the Lone Star State.
