Another member of the Bush family wants to go to Washington. Pierce Bush, 33, grandson of President George H.W. Bush and nephew of President George W. Bush, filed to run in the Republican primary for Texas’s 22nd District.
Bush, a Houston-based CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters Lone Star, is the son of Neil Bush, a businessman and investor and one of five living children of the 41st president. Neil’s oldest brother, former Texas Gov. George W. Bush, served as president 2001-2009, entering the White House eight years after his father exited.
The 22nd District covers a largely suburban south-central portion of the greater Houston area. More than a dozen Republicans are already vying for the seat, from which GOP Rep. Pete Olson is retiring after the 2020 elections.
