George P. Bush garnering support from North Texans

Posted: Updated:

The next generation of the Bush political dynasty took the stage in North Texas Saturday night.

George Prescott Bush, son of former Florida Governor Jeb, nephew of former President George W. Bush and grandson of former President George H.W. Bush, is helping raise money for Denton County Republicans.

He's announced he will run for statewide office but won't say which one.

The Denton County Republican chair said if he plans to run for office, he'll have to carry Denton County.

"I think George brings a message that we are a party of rising stars, we are a party of young people, people who welcome anyone who shares our conservative beliefs," said Denton County Republican Party Chairwoman Dianne Edmondson.

"He's an attractive young man. He's got a golden name in Texas politics and I think that's going to get him through this first race," said SMU Political Scientist Cal Jillson.

Bush, 36, has more than just name recognition. He's raised more than $1.4 million dollars in Texas. He seems to be appealing to the public.

"He comes off very well spoken. I think he'll be a great candidate for anything he decides to run for in the state of Texas and seem to be very much on top of his game tonight," said Republican Brody Shanklin.

George P. Bush is said to be seriously considering a run for land commissioner.

Some say a run for attorney general could happen, if current Attorney General Greg Abbott leaves that post to run for governor.
