Maverick PAC Going National
The Texas based young Republican PAC co-chaired by George P. Bush is going national. Bush is the son of former Florida Governor Jeb Bush and is the nephew of George W. Bush.
This political action committee known as MavPac sprung up in 2004 in Texas and now is establishing roots in California, Florida, and Washington, D.C. The group is hoping to expand even more and become a player in the next election it seems.
So what is MavPac all about? According to Politico:
MavPac, as it’s now known, allows Republicans in their 20s and 30s to participate in the fundraising process by holding low-dollar events that young professionals can afford.
“Our idea is to offer a lower price point to gain the same type of access to elected officials as you would if you were a high-rolling bundler,” Bush explained.
I think MavPac is a great idea for Republicans. The Democratic Party has been seen as the young cool crowd while the GOP has been seen as the party of the old white men. Groups like this can start to change that image and get people involved in a way they couldn’t before.
