After months of speculation, George P. Bush has chosen his path to a political career in Texas.

According to a spokesman, the Texas native filed the paperwork required to run for Texas land commissioner.

Bush is the grandson of one former president and the nephew of another. As a Spanish-speaker whose mother is originally from Mexico, he’s seen by many in the Republican party as a means to court the state’s growing Hispanic population.

Land commissioner can be a stepping stone to higher office in Texas. Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst served in the post before winning his current job.
