Another member of the Bush family is jumping into the political arena. George Prescott Bush filed paperwork to run for Texas office in 2014.
Bush is the eldest son of former Florida Governor Jeb Bush and nephew of George W. Bush. His mother, Columba Garnica Gallo, is a naturalized citizen of the U.S. originally from Mexico. He provides a fresh and much-needed diverse perspective to the Republican Party. A Hispanic thirty-six year-old attorney and a member of the U.S. Navy, he served in Afghanistan for six months under the United States Special Operations Command under an assumed name for security purposes.
Bush helped with the GOP Hispanic outreach in Texas—a key demographic the GOP needs in upcoming elections.
Last week, Jeb Bush emailed supporters and announced his son will most likely seek election as Texas Land Commissioner in 2014—a position that is often seen as a road to a career in politics and suggests he is looking to be one of the new faces of the GOP.
Trey Newton, a Bush political strategist, said that no decision has been made on which office Bush will seek out but land commissioner is definitely on the list, as well as lieutenant governor, agriculture commissioner, comptroller and attorney general.
Newton explained that Bush will see what other sitting politicians decide to do and he will then make his choice. He said, “What he doesn’t want to do is divide the party and create a bunch of infighting with a primary battle.”
Florida based GOP strategist Ana Navarro said, “George P. was raised in a bicultural home in south Florida — he’s not only bilingual, he is bi-cultural and is fully comfortable functioning in that world. His voice is just the kind that we desperately need in the Republican Party right now.”
The Bush family has close relations with Saudis and they are known for their fiscally conservative ideology—which is to blame for the majority of economic problems we are facing today. Is America ready and willing to elect another George Bush? Time will tell, but it’s looking good for the young candidate.
“There’s an old saying in Tennessee — I know it’s in Texas, probably in Tennessee — that says, fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can’t get fooled again.” ~ George W. Bush
