New Generation Bush Emerges


Maverick PAC, the Texas-based group of young Republican donors, is going national. The organization that sprang up during President George W. Bush’s 2004 re-election has established a presence in California, Florida, Washington, D.C. and also has its eye on Illinois and the interior west, according to co-chairman George P. Bush, who’s the son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush. They’re also going to hire a full-time executive director this year as part of an effort to broaden their reach in the run-up to 2012, Bush said.
MavPac, as it’s now known, allows Republicans in their 20s and 30s to participate in the fundraising process by holding low-dollar events that young professionals can afford.
“Our idea is to offer a lower price point to gain the same type of access to elected officials as you would if you were a high-rolling bundler,” Bush explained.
The group has already had events this year in Washington, California and Miami and is planning one in New York.

Isn't George Prescott Bush so dreamy? I know he's a Naval Officer and served in Iraq (intelligence field) some time ago. I have no doubt he'll make a great public servant someday!
