George P. Bush kicked off his political career Tuesday evening with a video announcing his candidacy for Texas Land Commissioner, praising his home state, touting the need for more domestic drilling — and doing it all against a soundtrack that closely resembles Beyoncé’s hit pop ballad, “Halo.”
The son of former Florida governor, Bush has long been expected to join the family political dynasty with a run for public office. It’s unclear, however, whether Beyoncé, an ardent supporter of President Barack Obama and a Houston native, supports Bush’s campaign.
BuzzFeed asked a spokesperson for the singer whether she supported Bush using her song in his ad, but did not receive an immediate response.
