Newscast Media HOUSTON—George P. Bush was hosted at a private event in the Greater Tomball area, northwest of Houston late this week. The event was organized by Barbara Tague, who also welcomed Newscast Media to cover it.
While many know him as grandson of President George H.W. Bush, son of former Governor Jeb Bush, and nephew of President George W. Bush, George P. is a native-born Texan looking to infuse his strong convictions and fresh perspectives into his campaign for office, to provide leadership here in Texas.
George considers himself Latino, and is on a quest to galvanize the Hispanic community and conservatives to propel him into office.
Below are the highlights of the event where George P. spoke to an audience in an intimate setting after a meet-and-greet session and a delicious evening meal.

Barbara Tague, President of Greater Tomball Pacherdym Club, is perhaps one of the most powerful and influential women in Texas politics, who organized the event for "George P", as he likes to be called. When Ted Cruz was an unknown regular Texan, Mizz Tague convinced him to run for office against veteran politician Texas Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst. She threw her weight behind Cruz, and the rest as they say, is history.—Photo by Joseph Earnest.
Chris Daniel is another person who holds one of the most powerful positions in the City of Houston and the entire Harris county as our District Clerk. Virtually every lawsuit that is filed in state court in Houston, every court order or judgment has to have his signature or stamp, for the paperwork to be considered valid and enforceable. Chris Daniel is running for re-election in 2014 as a conservative.

In 2006, George joined the U.S. Naval Reserve and began an eight-month tour of duty in Afghanistan in support of Operation Endure Freedom under the Special Operations Command. Among other service decorations, he was awarded the Joint Service Commendation Medal for his meritorious work.—Photo by Joseph Earnest.

Audience members listening to George P. Bush inside the venue. George is co-founder and chairman of the Hispanic Republicans of Texas and considers himself a Latino. He travels the state speaking to Hispanic groups about "kitchen table issues" which he believes unite the Hispanic community.

Because the night was still young, after George P, made his presentation, he interacted and took additional questions from audience members, young and old alike. —Photo by Joseph Earnest
