Texas Governor and Republican presidential candidate George W. Bush questioned the Justice Department's decision to bring a massive lawsuit against the tobacco industry on Wednesday.

McClelland also said, "The governor is troubled by the Justice Department's reversal of its earlier position that a federal lawsuit had no merit."
