ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The nephew of former President George W. Bush is scheduled to address Republican Party activists in New Mexico.

Republican Party of New Mexico Chairman John Billingsley announced that George P. Bush will be the keynote speaker at RPNM's annual Lincoln Day Dinner on March 23.

The younger Bush is the son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and wife, Columba, a naturalized U.S. citizen from Mexico.

Bush told Texas Republicans last week that conservative Republicans could compete for Latino voters by emphasizing energy production and education and still remaining true to their core values.

He recently announced that he planned to run for statewide office in Texas in 2014.
