George P. Bush Raised $2 Million For Texas Campaign

Updated: Monday, July 15 2013, 01:18 PM CDT

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- George P. Bush has raised more than $2 million for his Texas land commission race during the first six months of the year.

Spokesman Trey Newton says his campaign will report $2.6 million in cash on-hand in filings to the Texas Ethics Commission later Monday.

The grandson of one former president and nephew of another, Bush raked in $1.3-plus million in his first eight weeks of campaigning last year. But that total included large donations from his father, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, and his uncle, ex-President George W. Bush.

Newton said Bush's latest haul included 1,600 contributors and no major family donations. Bush did, though, hold two Texas fundraisers with his uncle and his grandfather, former President George H.W. Bush.
