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.
