AUSTIN (AP) — George P. Bush, who caused a stir when he made a Texas campaign filing last week, will guest-host CNBC's "Squawk Box" on Thursday.
The grandson of one former president and nephew of another, Bush is a rising star among Hispanic Republicans.
He's son of ex-Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and his mother is originally from Mexico.
Bush political strategist Trey Newton said Monday that the appearance was scheduled before Bush filed campaign papers Nov. 7 with the Texas Ethics Commission.
Bush has guest-hosted Squawk Box before, and appeared on the program with his father on Father's Day.
Newton said Bush will likely run for Texas attorney general, land commissioner or comptroller in 2014.
All posts are held by Republicans likely to seek higher offices, clearing the way for a Bush candidacy.
