ANOTHER George Bush? George Prescott Bush : A Political Dynasty’s ’Young Hope’

The fourth-generation heir to the Bush political dynasty, groomed for office since his childhood, is coming of age and building a political network.

His great-grandfather was a senator, his grandfather and uncle presidents, his father governor of Florida. Now a new George Bush is contemplating going into the family business.

George Prescott Garnica Bush, known to friends as "P," is not just a chip off the old preppy block. The 36-year-old son of Jeb Bush and nephew of W. is Hispanic -- his mother, Columba, is from Mexico -- with brown skin, thick black hair, and a toothy, gleaming smile. He’s a lawyer, a Navy vet who served in Afghanistan, and a political fundraiser who works to expand the Republican Party’s outreach to Latinos and young people. Chatty without being overly polished, he lives in Fort Worth with his wife, whom he met in law school at the University of Texas, and runs half marathons in his spare time. It’s as if the ruling class kept pumping out new, less WASPy, more modern products to keep up with changing demand.

Bush has been touted as a political prospect practically since he was old enough to walk. At 12, he spoke at his grandfather’s first nominating convention; at 24, he recorded TV commercials for his uncle’s 2000 campaign. ("I have an uncle who is running for president because he believes in ... opportunity for every American, for every Latino," he said in the ad. "His name? The same as mine, George Bush.") Of George H.W. Bush’s 17 grandchildren, he once boasted of being the favorite.

Now, Texas and Bush family observers wonder if his time is drawing nigh. As soon as 2014, they speculate, he could run for Congress or state office in Texas.

In Washington this week to tout a new partnership on young voter outreach, Bush proved adept at the political art of coyly encouraging such speculation. "I’m weighing that in my own mind," he said of his political future. "I’m not specifically looking at anything right now, but yeah, I’d be open to it."
