|George P. Bush is part of the next generation of Texas leaders.
He is a successful businessman, philanthropist, civic leader and veteran dedicated to advancing conservative values.
While many know him as grandson of President George H.W. Bush,
son of former Gov. Jeb Bush and nephew of President George W. Bush,
George P. is a native-born Texan and leader with strong convictions and fresh perspectives. George earned his undergraduate degree from Rice University and went on to teach at-risk students at Homestead High School in Florida's Miami-Dade Independent School District.
George then returned to Texas to work on his uncle George W.'s presidential campaign. In 2000, George entered the University of Texas School of Law where he received his Juris Doctorate.
After his clerkship for federal Judge Sidney Allen Fitzwater, George joined one of the nation's largest and most prestigious law firms, Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP. He later co-founded Pennybacker Capital LLC, a real estate private equity firm and most recently, George founded St. Augustine Partners LLC, a Fort Worth-based investment firm focused on energy and business consulting.
In 2006, George joined the U.S. Naval Reserve through the Direct Commission Officer program. In 2010, he began an eight-month tour of duty in Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom under the Special Operations Command. Among other service decorations, he was awarded the Joint Service Commendation Medal for his meritorious service. Committed to helping his community and the state of Texas, George organized efforts to expand Big Brothers Big Sisters in North Texas and serves as the co-chairman of the Dallas/Fort Worth Celebration of Reading.
He is the Deputy Finance Chair for the Republican Party of Texas and is a co-founder and chairman of the Hispanic Republicans of Texas. With HRT, George travels the state speaking to Hispanic groups about "kitchen table issues," which he believes unite the Hispanic community and conservatives. The group is the first in Texas with admission to seek out and help Hispanic leaders running for public office.
George is also the national co-chair of Maverick Pac, a national political action committee dedicated to engaging the next generation of Republican voters. In November 2012, George filed papers with the Texas Ethics Commission, declaring himself a candidate for office in 2014.
