AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — George P. Bush has been named deputy finance chairman of the Republican Party of Texas.
In a statement Monday, party chairman Steve Munisteri called Bush "a relatively young, dynamic, intelligent, and articulate leader."
Bush, 36, is the nephew of former President George W. Bush and the eldest of three children of ex-Florida Gov. Jeb Bush. He co-founded Austin-based Pennybacker Capital, a real estate private equity firm.
Bush is on the board of directors of Hispanic Republicans of Texas, a nonprofit dedicated to electing Republican Hispanic candidates around the state.
He has been involved in several past fundraising efforts for conservative causes and other organizations. Bush is also co-founder of Maverick PAC, a political action committee working to engage next-generation GOP leaders from business, politics and law.
