Skip to comments.George P. Bush moves toward seeking office in Texas
Posted on 11/09/2012 12:17:58 AM PST by My Favorite Headache
George P. Bush of Fort Worth, the son of a former governor, and a grandson and nephew of former U.S. presidents, has filed paperwork with the Texas Ethics Commission, seemingly in preparation for a run for local or statewide office.
As first reported by The New Republic, Bush, 36, filed what is called an "appointment of a campaign treasurer by a candidate" form, which Texas Ethics Commission general Counsel Tim Sorrells said is required of someone who is a candidate.
The report, filed Wednesday, does not indicate which office Bush has his eye on. That might become more evident on Jan. 15, the next deadline for campaign finance reports.
He is a son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, grandson of former President George H. W. Bush and a nephew of former president and Texas governor George W. Bush.
Bush keeps residences in Fort Worth, where his wife works as an attorney, and in Austin where he is a partner in Pennybacker Capital.
He co-founded the Hispanic Republicans of Texas Political Action Committee. He is considered one of the GOP's rising Latino stars and told the Tribune in March that "politics is in his blood." He declined then to speculate about any immediate plans to seek office, although speculation has centered on a run for comptroller.
Bush said that on issues such as immigration, he was a George W. Bush Republican -- a moderate.

As the good reverend might say, “Stay out da Bushes!”. LOL.
We are truly a banana republic. Yes, he has the right to run for office, but we all know what this is about.
If the Bush's were honest men, they would run in the party of their core beliefs -- the Democrat Party.
Bush 43 spent like a democrat when it came to Domestic spending.
It's disgusting how all these political families (Bush, clinton, Kennedy, etc.) believe they are destined to rule over us.
And.....our long national nightmare continues since Tuesday’s election. Another Bush.
Good luck with that. Seems to me his name is as good as mud
I’m so sick of this and this nightmare has just begun.
Same with the Kennedys.
“...He co-founded the Hispanic Republicans of Texas Political Action Committee...”
Does anyone else find this offensive?
I detest hyphonated Americans, and now hyphonated Republicans? You are either a Republican and an American, or you are not.
“Bush said that on issues such as immigration, he was a George W. Bush Republican — a moderate.”
And there you have it. Another Republican liberal. That will hurt his chances more than the Bush name.
He will split up the conservatives and republican and land Texas with a democrat for Governor.
“And.....our long national nightmare continues since Tuesdays election. Another Bush.”
Could be worse. Imagine Meghan McCain for prez!
ENOUGH! FOR PETE’S SAKE. What is this?! GUATEMALA?!!
We must find this lab and shut it down.
Lol, don’t get me started on that air-head:)
Who says we don’t have “royal families” here in the States ???
Obama’s daughter will be the first black female president.
Unfortunately, I think we will have to also suffer through a Hillary administration or two first. Nah...on second thought, it will never happen....right???
Is Perry planning to run again? If so, maybe he shouldn’t. I think after the primaries he lost some supporters. Toss a Bush into the mix...we will get the democrat.
I think Texas needs to find a good one to run, starting now. Canseco voted well and if he loses his seat, maybe him? I don’t know but we had better get busy hunting a good candidate.
I was thinking Michelle Obama. We can be just like Argentina.
Heck, the Clintons, the Bushs and now the Obamas.
The Castro’s in Texas are working on a family operation, too!
I am also expecting Michelle Obama to go on a “listening” tour in 2014. . .prepping for her run in 2016.
(1) the machinery to steal elections on a national level is now in place AND tested, and,
(2) the obvious feeling of entitlement of the Obamas
The only REAL question is, who will succeed Michelle Obama in 2024 ?? Their oldest, Malia, will only be 26, 9 years younger than the Constitution allows.
Assuming, that is, that we still HAVE a Constitution in 2024. . .
You’re forgetting chelsea.
Chelsea is a Clinton, and of opposite faction to the Obamas. . .
(1) Make as much money in commissions as humanly possible thanks to Citizens United (Rove made over $25 mil this year)
(2) Run the most ineffective ads so Romney will lose and pave the way for Jeb Bush in 2016
I will NEVER support another RINO, open-borders Bush for the rest of my life. I think we should ban the entire family from politics, along with the Clintons, and put it in the Constitution.
Where’s Bob Dole when you need him??
Here he is! http://www.bobdole.org/
It’s his turn again, isn’t it? He should get another whack at it before the “moderate” Bushes do. This could be his last shot, since he’s 89. I think he could do it this time!
Just in case someone is not real alert, /s
If we are offered another Bush. I will have officially quit elections. It will all be an illusion that I will no longer participate in. I will wait for the war.
“We must find this lab and shut it down.” -Berlin_Freeper
That’s good stuff.
I will vote for Bush’s opponent.
that opponent does not have to be
Republican, alive or human.
just not Bush
The little idiot has presidential sugarplums dancing in his empty head.
Sunday or Monday night, who was standing directly behind Romney and looking into
the camera? No other than fat Jeb.
He no doubt is already working on 2016 as we speak.
He made me sick to watch him.
Looks a lot like his dad, although Jeb looks like he’s gained weight.
I see we have a lot of Bush haters here this morning.As far as I am concerned F U and the horse you rode in on. For now, that is all I have to say. Will follow up later.
Of all the possible Bush candidates, George P is probably the only one worth anything. And Texans need to prepare for Castro ... not Cuba’s but San Antonio ‘s. He’s sure to make a run in Texas after his convention bump.
Bushes = Kennedys.
You are one sick puppy, did you know that?
BS..... How can you even remotely compare the two?
Geez, I’ll suppose if Jeb doesn’t run we’ll be hearing about THIS kid as “only candidate who can win in 2016.”
Ha ha. If only.
The Reverend JJ was right!
Here is a question for you and anybody else who is interested:
When did his Mexican mother become a U.S. citizen?
I am asking because I don’t have the answer.
we had Mc Cain then we had Romney and looking at these rresults in WI, FL, OH, VA, PA then they do not add up as precints do not get 100% turn out and every vote goes for obama
But we got a rigged election and the only guy with balls is Col Allen West but the GOP’s answer is not to investigate these results no sir they have another Bush to give us.
[slams head on desk repeatedly and hard]
His mother is Mexican, so he would have the heritage and interests to do this
I see no problem with it
well, Columba Bush has been married to Governor Jeb Bush since 1974 so I guess there has been plenty of time for her to become a US citizen
I do, and thank you.
al qaeda took its best shot and only killed innocents, leaving congress and an up and coming senator in chicago unscathed. Oh well.
Read my lips, no more Bushes.
The Bushes, Texas’ faux royal family—no more Bushes.
As a dynasty, not politically.
