BECAUSE SOMEONE HAS TO SUCCEED JEB:

George P. Bush wins first election. Too soon to talk about White House 2024? (Peter Grier,  NOVEMBER 5, 2014, CS Monitor)

His father, his uncle George W. Bush, and grandfather George H. W. Bush all lost their initial forays into electoral politics. So did great-grandfather and former Sen. Prescott Bush. So P. (can we call him that?) already has bragging rights in his family. [...]

Land commissioner is a substantial position in the Lone Star State. The Texas General Land Office manages state-controlled lands and mineral rights. It also controls the Alamo, which is state-owned, so there's symbolism too. If P plays by the rules, shores up his right wing with continued shrewd moves - he was an early endorser of Ted Cruz for Senate - then he's got a chance of rising fast in state politics.
