George P. Bush Launches Political Career Accompanied By Beyoncé

The soundtrack to his announcement video sounds an awful lot like "Halo."

Posted on March 12, 2013, at 8:57 p.m. ET

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.
