Skip to comments.'Next Bush' makes campaign filing in Texas
Posted on 11/10/2012 3:13:01 AM PST by afraidfortherepublic
George P. Bush, a nephew of former President George W. Bush and son of one-time Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, has made a campaign filing in Texas that is required of candidates planning to run for state office, an official said Thursday night.
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.
Sorrells said the report does not specify what office Bush might seek, if any, and he had no other details on the filing, which wasn't available online. Bush did not immediately reply to an email seeking comment, and no phone listing for him could be found.
The 36-year-old said in September his goal was to run for office and acknowledged that he had his eyes on several statewide offices.
Raised in Florida, 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.

enough already! have we not suffered enough from camelot
Did Meghan McCain do the same in Arizona? When are Barry & Michelle’s girls going to run for Congress? What’s up with Amy Carter? Wasn’t she an expert on nuclear proliferation?
Beware of any politician with the last name Bush.
While they might be people of good character.....they have proven to be RINO’s......
And what have two RINO Repub candidates in a row done for us in the last two presidential elections?
I have voted for the last bush that I will ever vote for.
Agree with you both. I liked W a lot, and respected his love of country and what he did to protect us, but for the only time in my life I agree with Jesse Jackson: “Stay outta the Bushes.”
See my post above, also replying to you.
Good for him and I wish him well.
Are the Bushes after the gay vote?
I wish like hell W was still prez... I hope does well.
The time is ripe to (unbelievably) quote the Rev. Jackson.
“STAY OUT ‘THE BUSHES”
Instead of using the pulpit to defend himself, Bush "reached across the aisle" and literally let the left walk all over him. I can't go through another four years of that.
Sorry, but NO NEW BUSHES.
That face could move DAMES away from the DEMS!!!!!
This Texan votes NO. Let this family bow out of politics and do something useful. We ought to consider political office one step above welfare, because both classes are a drain on taxpayers.
Forget about it Jorge. You’ve already shown that your allegiance is to Mexico. Take a hike.
Wow he looks like his daddy.
“Forget it Jorge!”
Isn’t this the same Jorge Bush who is sympathetic to La Raza?
What a ticket: Jeb and Jorge!
Excuse me while I move to Costa Rica.
Man, are you ever dead on!
No need; Costa Rica will move here soon.
No more Bushes..... No more country club RINO’s !
agree...and we need conservative hispanics to beat the dems .If the religious right wont vote conservative ..what are we to do?
“The Bushes are the GOP version of the Kennedy’s - - - “
That has been my understanding for a long time. Today’s party of RINO’s are now what the Kennedy Democrat party was in the 60’s. (I think this is why many cannot see any difference between Republicans and Democrats.)
The democrat party is now a commie socialist party that belongs in Europe.
The only party that represents conservative values is the Tea Party.
It will be interesting to see which statewide office he maybe interested in pursuing which could occur in 2014.
Well, if you clicked through the link to read the whole story you will find that he served a tour of Afghanistan, among other useful services. When he served in A, he had to do so under an assumed name. Even his collegues did not know his real name.
Have either of you served a tour in Afghanistan?
Good observation. Sadly, Mitt and his four sons had no military experience.
Note that most US Presidents have had daughters - weird - GW Sr. had one, W had 2, Nixon 2, LBJ 2, JFK 1, Carter 1, Reagan 2, Clinton 1. Ford 3. Obama 2.
Rule of thumb; If a candidate for POTUS has a son - he had better be in the military - or have served. I think it may be subliminal.
One of the “little brown ones’ all growed up.
That is pretty much how I see it.
I wish like hell W was still prez..
You mean the last six months of his presidency when the entire financial system almost froze up and people were worried about bank runs? That George Bush? right. we need him like a hole in the head.
Even freepers consider Pelosi an innocent bystander when it comes to the budget.
Just say no.
That's not saying much. I would take Humpty-Dumpty over the Kris Kringle we have now.
I do really like your tag line.
Oh damn, please, please no more Bushes!!!
GWH Bush had another daughter who died and 3, or 4 sons. LBJ had an illegitimate son. (Spittin’ image. Died before it could be proved.) JFK had 2 sons, one who died at birth and one who died in his 20s. Carter had several sons. Reagan had 2 sons (one adopted). Ford had only 1 daughter and 3 sons. We’re not sure whether Clinton had any children at all ;)
So, I count 15 sons vs 15 daughters. Seems to me that the sons are holding their own.
I predicted *years* ago during the second Bush disaster, this guy would eventually run for President, to continue the Bush dynasty.
I am convinced the Bush dynasty understood, if they could flood the country with tens of millions of illegals, P. Bush would have a shot at POTUS.
W. Bush in fact during 8 years as POTUS, made American citizenship all but pointless, and in fact emboldened tens of millions of illegals, to march on our towns and cities, while waving foreign flags and making demands and threats.
Dallas Texas, 2006, so emboldened by Bush, 500,000 illegals and their supporters march on Dallas Texas, making demands and threats.
I concur and recall everything you pointed out. Back then I was pointing these very things out here and elsewhere all the while being shouted down by the RINO hit squads running amok around here back then. Bush was their god.
You bet Ron. The Internet makes a great witness.
Those capable of critical thought, years ago were able to see the Bush family and their enablers continually push and support their dynasty.
So that gives him a pass on his La Raza and open borders support because he served in Afghanistan? What does that have to do with it?
Yes sir, please no more Bushs.
