George P. Bush got the "W" on Tuesday.

The grandson of former President George H.W. Bush, nephew of former President and Texas Governor George W. Bush, and son of former Florida Governor Jeb Bush followed in the Bush men's political footsteps on Tuesday. The 37-year-old Fort Worth attorney won the Republican nomination for Texas land commissioner.

Bush filed to run for the office in November. At the time his only competition was Republican David Watts.

At his victory party at a Mexican restaurant in Fort Worth Bush said, "We don't have to change our conservative principles to win, we just need to change our tactics. You'll see that we have tea party friends, that we have mainstream conservatives, we have strong Latino support and a lot of younger voters." Bush spoke both English and Spanish at his victory party, where his Mexican-born mother Columba was in attendance.

Bush took to Twitter to encourage voters in Texas to go out and vote Tuesday, though he understood the weather may have some a bit wary to get out and vote.

The newly voted Republican nominee for Texas land commissioner also posted a photo to his Twitter account showing that he voted with his baby boy Prescott.

After winning Tuesday, Bush took to Twitter to thank his wife and all those who voted for him.

Now Bush's only competition in November for Texas land commissioner will be Democratic nominee and former El Paso Mayor John Cook.
