George P. Bush eyes campaign in Texas

George P. Bush has filed the paperwork necessary for a bid for office in Texas, the latest sign the rising GOP star will run for something next year.

The Hispanic son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) is a Texas-based GOP consultant and heads the Hispanic Republicans of Texas. He's been viewed as a rising star in Texas Republican politics, and on top of his family connections is known as a compelling speaker and savvy campaign strategist.

It's unclear what office he's considering. In September he said he had his eye on a number of statewide offices.

Texas is now a majority-minority state, and Texas Republicans have made efforts to find Hispanic candidates to run statewide — newly elected Sen. Ted Cruz (R) is the most recent example.
