Turns out they do!
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.
Ana Navarro, who was the national Hispanic co-chairwoman for John McCain when he ran for president in 2008, tweeted her enthusiasm Thursday.
"Wrote check for my friend, (at)georgepbush newly formed exploratory committee for office in TX. Young, pragmatic, Hispanic, just what GOP needs," Navarro's tweet read.
Oh good grief.
The Bush family is incorrigible.
Hey Bushes -- "You don't own Texas as a fief!"
GET OFF THE STAGE!
It takes more than having having a Spanish name and dark skin to win the Hispanic vote. If they run an Hispanic candidate who tows the GOP party line regarding immigration, education and social issues, they will not win.
Thank you, R2, as much as I said on another thread.
[quote]tows the GOP party line
R2: it is "toes" not "tows."
thank you R4. I did question myself as to what one was correct. It doesn't make sense, when one considers what it means to tow something. But then again, there are lots of rules in English that make little sense.
R4 and R5, your behavior is an embarrassment to DL. There is no place for civility on this board goddamnit!
For all the Manchurian Candidate talk about Obama, this is actually a plausible M.C. scenario... an unfolding of Prescott Bush's 100-year Plan.
Go fuck yourself, R6!
Jesus R8 buy a sense of humor maybe?
So that's what happened to that little brown one.
R9, did you even read what R6 said?
I love him, but standards must be upheld.
The GOP has a few Latinos in their ranks: Senator Marco Rubio, Senator-Elect Ted Cruz, and that woman who is the Governor of New Mexico.
I understand why I have been chided by R6, and appreciate the humor, however, I decided not to be a total bitch to a fellow Dem (who was saying something with which I agree) and go the "oh, dear!" route. I never hesitate to use that on someone who says something idiotic or a Rethug -- ah, but, I repeat myself.
(And, R2, one more little thing, it is "which one was correct," not "what one.")
