GRAPEVINE (AP) – The nephew of former President George W. Bush headlined a local North Texas Republican fundraiser Satuday night — along with one of the state’s most strident conservative voices.

George Prescott Bush is seen as a potential future star and the latest member of the Republican Party’s most prominent families to enter GOP politics. His father is former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, and his uncle and grandfather are former presidents.

The 36-year-old Bush spoke Saturday at the Denton County Republican Party’s Lincoln-Reagan dinner. The master of ceremonies is U.S. Rep. Louie Gohmert, an East Texas Republican and tea party firebrand.

Bush placed himself in the “9/11 generation” and said he was worried about the country’s future.

He said that while he isn’t yet revealing any details about his political plans, he believes it’s his generation’s turn to lead.

He said Republicans don’t need to change their party message, but improve how they communicate it.

Bush has crisscrossed the state and is raising money for a run at an as-yet-announced statewide office next year. Saturday’s event allowed him to meet tea party voters critical in Republican primaries.
