Attorney George P. Bush plans Texas run

George Prescott Bush is gearing up to run for a little-known but powerful office in Texas, a state where his family already is a political dynasty and where his Hispanic roots could help extend a stranglehold on power that Republicans have enjoyed for two decades.
