George P. Bush: A Bush can survive in Trump political world

Posted: Updated:
(AP) -

It was 18 months ago when George P. Bush -- Jeb Bush's oldest child -- was elected Texas land commissioner, just a few weeks past his 40th birthday.
   He's quietly continuing his family's political legacy.
   The grandson of a former president and nephew of another, George P. Bush is a rising star in America's largest conservative state.
   And he's keeping alive the possibility that a political dynasty -- declared dead by many when his dad flamed out of the 2016 presidential race -- could return to national prominence.
   What remains to be seen is whether he can survive in a political world turned upside down by Donald Trump -- where Republican primary voters overwhelmingly embraced the ultimate outsider who promises to smash the political establishment the Bushes embodied for decades.
