Trump allies set for bitter brawl in Texas AG primary

Two high-profile allies of former President Trump are barreling toward confrontation in the race for Texas attorney general in what could become one of the Lone Star State’s closest-watched primaries next year.

The race began in earnest last week when Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush, the son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, announced a challenge to sitting Attorney General Ken Paxton, who is expected to run for a third term in 2022.
