    The nephew of former President George W. Bush headlines a local North Texas Republican fundraiser -- along with one of the state's most strident conservative voices.

    George Prescott Bush is seen as a potential future star and the latest member of the Republican Party's most prominent families to enter GOP politics. His father is former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, and his uncle and grandfather are former presidents.

    The 36-year-old Bush is to speak Saturday at the Denton County Republican Party's Lincoln-Reagan dinner. The master of ceremonies is U.S. Rep. Louie Gohmert, an East Texas Republican and tea party firebrand.

    Bush has crisscrossed the state and is raising money for a run at statewide office next year. Saturday's event allows him to meet tea party voters critical in Republican primaries.
