The grandson of the late, legendary Republican President George H.W. Bush will be carrying on his family’s legacy of public service by filing to compete for an open congressional seat in his homestate of Texas.
As The Hill reports:
Pierce Bush, the grandson of the late President George H.W. Bush, will file for an open congressional seat in Texas on Monday, according to an email written by his father, Neil Bush, that was obtained by The Texas Tribune.
Pierce Bush, the CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters Lone Star, will announce his candidacy for Texas’s 22nd District, which is currently held by retiring Republican Rep. Pete Olson, the newspaper reported.
In the email obtained by the Tribune, Neil Bush touts his son’s nonprofit sector work and asks friends to donate to the campaign.
The filing deadline to run for the seat is Monday.
Bush will have big shoes to fill as his family, which includes George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush, and Jeb Bush, is perhaps the most famous in all of Republican politics.
