On the hunt for the presidency, Jeb Bush adopts a 'caveman' diet
Yahoo News - almost 2 years
By Steve Holland WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Jeb Bush is eating like a caveman, and he has literally shrunk in size. The former Florida governor, expected to seek the Republican presidential nomination in 2016, is on the popular Paleo diet, which is based on what are believed to be the eating habits of the Paleolithic hunters and gatherers. For Bush, the results have been noticeable. His son George P. Bush, the newly elected Texas land commissioner, talked Jeb and Jeb Bush Jr. into trying it, a source close to Bush said.

Rand Paul Reaches Out To George P. Bush For 'Advice' On Connecting With Hispanics
Huffington Post - about 3 years
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) turned to one of the Bush family's rising stars for some "advice" on connecting with a key voting bloc. Politico reported Friday that Paul met with George P. Bush in Dallas, picking his brain on how the GOP could prosper in areas with heavy Latino populations. The 37-year-old Bush is running for Texas Land Commissioner in 2014, and considered a hot prospect among conservative Hispanics.

George P. Bush files to run for Texas office
Yahoo News - over 3 years
By Jim Forsyth SAN ANTONIO (Reuters) - George P. Bush, a son of a governor and a nephew and grandson to U.S. presidents, has filed to run statewide in Texas, the latest member of the powerful political family to seek elected office. Bush, 37, the son of former Florida Governor Jeb Bush and his Mexican-born wife, Columba, is seen by some as a transformative figure - a Hispanic candidate for a Republican Party that wants to appeal to the growing and increasingly influential electorate of Latino voters. Bush filed on Tuesday to run for Texas Land Commissioner, a position which, among other duties, manages the Alamo in San Antonio - a symbol of the often contentious relationship between Mexicans and Anglos in Texas. "This certainly helps the Republican Party present an image of a party that not only seeks Hispanic votes but is running Hispanics for office," Mark P. Jones, a political analyst at Rice University in Houston, told Reuters.
