Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush has come under fire in recent days over his work schedule.

The Houston Chronicle reported Sunday that Bush was away from the office for 23 of the first 50 days after his father, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, declared his run for the White House.

The Chronicle's analysis shows that George P. Bush spent much of the time away campaigning for his father.

NBC 5's Brian Curtis sat down with George P. Bush in Austin, where the commissioner defended his work record.
