Personnel note: George P. Bush takes role as Deputy Finance Chairman for Texas GOP


George P. Bush has signed on to serve as deputy finance chairman for the Republican Party of Texas.

The nephew of former President George W. Bush and son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, the 36-year-old Bush — long considered by some as the future leader of the Republican Party — has been closely watched from his days at law school to his deployment to Afghanistan as an intelligence officer in the Navy Reserve.

“I am excited about this opportunity to help the Republican Party here in Texas,” he told the Star-Telegram in a written statement. “We have excellent candidates running for office who, once elected, will continue the tradition of making Texas the greatest State in the Union.”
