George W. Bush's nephew makes campaign filing in Texas

The 36-year-old son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush may be the GOP's best hope for a strong Hispanic voice in the party.

DALLAS — A Texas official says that George P. Bush, the nephew of former President George W. Bush and son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, has made a campaign filing that is required for someone to run for office in his home state.

Tim Sorrells, general counsel for the Texas Ethics Commission, says Bush filed a campaign treasurer appointment on Wednesday. Sorrells told The Associated Press on Thursday night the document is required for someone to become a candidate under campaign finance law, according to the Associated Press.

Bush's mother was born in Mexico. Bush, who lives in Fort Worth, Texas, hinted last month at an event in South Texas that he  might step into politics.

He was deployed for six months in Afghanistan as a Navy serviceman. For security purposes, he was given a different name, according to USA Today.
