George P. Bush at center of campaign buzz
By Deborah Sharp, USA TODAY
WASHINGTON - Get ready to hear - and see - a lot of George P. Bush.
He's the 24-year-old descendant of a political dynasty: His granddad was president, and his Uncle George wants to be.
He's a symbol of diversity deployed, ''en espanol,'' to court young and Latino voters for the Bush campaign.
And, let's face it, he's a major hottie: a cross between Ricky Martin and John Kennedy Jr. in the looks department.
''He just popped out of nowhere, and now it's like, 'Ooh, la-la!' '' said Angelo Figueroa, managing editor of People en Espanol, the popular magazine's Spanish-language offshoot. ''He's hunky. There's definitely a buzz.''
George P., as he's called, is the son of Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and his Mexican-born wife, Columba. Fluent in Spanish, the younger Bush debuted this month in several bilingual TV spots. Next month, he'll assume a high-profile role as youth chairman at the Republican National Convention. more
The Bush campaign ads, which are likely to be seen in other markets with high concentrations of Hispanics, drew tons of media attention in New York where they aired. And George P. caused a stir at a kickoff party for the city's Puerto Rican Day parade.
''Everyone was recognizing him. Democrats were coming up to shake his hand,'' said Lionel Sosa, a San Antonio ad man who helped design Bush's Hispanic outreach spots. ''All the girls look at him with very admiring eyes. All the guys want to high-five him.''
