Another Bush ponders run
Jeb’s son files campaign forms in Texas
DALLAS — George P. Bush, a nephew of former President George W. Bush and son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, has made a campaign filing in Texas that is required of people planning to run for state office, an official said last week.
The younger Bush, a Fort Worth resident, filed a campaign treasurer appointment Wednesday, a requirement for someone to become a candidate under campaign finance law, Tim Sorrells, general counsel for the Texas Ethics Commission, told The Associated Press.
Mr. Sorrells said the report does not specify what office Mr. Bush might seek, if any, and he had no other details on the filing, which wasn’t available online. Mr. Bush did not reply to an email seeking comment, and no phone listing for him could be found.
Mr. Bush, 26, said in September that his goal was to run for office and acknowledged that he had his eyes on several statewide offices.
Raised in Florida, Mr. Bush decided to settle in Texas, home to his uncle and his grandfather, former President George H.W. Bush. He runs a consulting firm and has been active in Republican Party outreach to college students. He’s also the co-founder of Hispanic Republicans of Texas, a group that seeks to elect Hispanic candidates.
Ana Navarro, who was the national Hispanic co-chairwoman for Sen. John McCain when he ran for president in 2008, tweeted her enthusiasm Thursday.
Mr. Bush’s mother is Mexican.
Mr. Bush and his wife, Amanda, met while attending law school at the University of Texas at Austin. After working as a lawyer, Mr. Bush became a partner in a real estate investment firm. He has started his second company, St. Augustine Partners, a business consulting firm aimed at small- and medium-market energy industries.
Mr. Bush also has Navy service on his resume, including a six-month deployment to Afghanistan, where, for security purposes, he was given a different name. Not even those he was serving alongside knew he was a member of the Bush family.
