DALLAS (AP) — A Texas official says a nephew of former President George W. Bush has made a campaign filing that is required for someone to run for office in his home state.

Tim Sorrells, general counsel for the Texas Ethics Commission, says George P. Bush filed a campaign treasurer appointment on Wednesday. Sorrells told The Associated Press on Thursday night the document is required for someone to become a candidate under campaign finance law.

Sorrells didn't have other details on the filing. Bush did not immediately reply to an email seeking comment.

The 36-year-old son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush said in September his goal was to run for office. The younger Bush lives in Fort Worth, where he runs a consulting firm.
