Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush, son of Jeb, attended a fundraiser for his re-election campaign Wednesday in Coral Gables.

The reception was hosted at the MesaMar seafood restaurant by a gaggle of locals that included Gables Commissioner Vince Lago, former Florida GOP chief Al Cardenas, lobbyists Ron Book and Luis Andre Gazitua, and the candidate’s brother, Jeb Bush Jr.

Also involved were friends of Bush the elder, such as Edward Easton, Ronnie Krongold, Raquel Rodriguez, Jose Mallea and Justin Sayfie, according to an invitation obtained by the Miami Herald. The committee further includes Slater Bayliss, Nicole Valls, Joe Caruncho, Andres Asion, Manny Kadre, Harout Samra, Matt Sarelson, and Maggie and Fernando Zulueta. The suggested campaign contribution is $500 per person.

George P. Bush’s name has been bandied about political circles in recent years as a potential future candidate for Texas governor, following in the footsteps of his father and his uncle, former President George W. Bush.
