DALLAS (November 9, 2012)—Former President George W. Bush’s nephew George P. Bush has made a campaign filing that is required for someone to run for office in Texas.
Tim Sorrells, general counsel for the Texas Ethics Commission, said George P. Bush filed a campaign treasurer appointment on Wednesday.
Sorrells told The Associated Press Thursday night the document is required for someone to become a candidate under campaign finance law.
Sorrells didn't have other details on the filing. And Bush did not immediately reply to an email seeking comment.
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 will run for attorney general.
George P. Bush, 36, the son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, said in September his goal was to run for office.
The younger Bush lives in Fort Worth, where he runs a consulting firm.
