Texas Land Commissioner candidate George P. Bush will pick Hays County pockets for campaign contributions at a Nov. 1 fundraiser thrown by former County Judge Jim Powers and Hays County Commissioners Will Conley and Mark Jones.
The private event will be hosted by Powers and his wife, Maripat, at their Dripping Springs home.
Bush, a Fort Worth investment advisor, faces a primary opponent in David Watts, an East Texas business consultant, who recently made the news by proposing that the state’s public schools refuse to enroll children of immigrants who entered the country illegally. Bush is the son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Columba, a naturalized U.S. citizen born in Mexico.
Party primaries are in March next year followed by the general election in November. On Tuesday, Bush’s campaign touted endorsements from State Rep. Jason Isaac (R-Dripping Springs) and 21 other Republican legislators.
