GOVERNOR-ELECT BUSH WANTS TO KEEP RANGERS
Published November 10, 1994
Texas Governor-elect George W. Bush wants to keep his minority interest in the Texas Rangers. However, he would "sell if ownership gives rise to potential conflict of interest with his duties as governor." Karen Hughes, Bush's campaign press secretary, said Bush has asked his lawyers whether he needs to put that interest in a trust, but added Bush would "eliminate his duties as managing partner." MLB Dir of Public Relations Jim Small said there is "nothing that prohibits" a politician from owning a team (Simon Gonzalez, FORT WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM, 11/10).
