George P. Bush has raised a whopping $1.3 million in less than two months – with a financial boost from the family and the Bush political network – to launch his first race for statewide office in Texas. Top contributors included father Jeb Bush, the former governor of Florida, and uncle George W. Bush, the former president. Each gave $50,000 to the younger Bush's fledgling political campaign.

The robust financial showing in his first weeks of fundraising indicates that the Bush network is very much alive and ready to help bankroll the next generation of the nation's best-known Republican political family.
