Coming to Texas ballots: Another Bush in 2014?

By PAUL J. WEBER and WILL WEISSERT, Associated Press

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — George P. Bush's campaign paperwork in Texas is being cheered by Republicans eager for new Hispanic faces in the party. It's also fueling speculation about what office the former president's nephew might seek.

The 36-year-old consultant is the son of one-time Florida Gov. Jeb Bush. He became the family's latest to move toward public office this week by submitting a filing in Texas that's required of potential statewide candidates.

The document doesn't specify what office Bush might seek. Republican Texas Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson said Friday he thinks the younger Bush will likely seek his job in 2014 or run for attorney general.

Patterson says Bush would give the GOP "something besides old white guys like me on the ballot." Bush's mother was born in Mexico.
