September 14, 1987|United Press International

WASHINGTON — Vice President George Bush, the undisputed leader of the GOP pack in money and organization, will formally announce his candidacy for the White House on Oct. 12 in Houston, aides said Sunday.

Confirming a report in the Chicago Sun-Times, aides to the vice president said Bush will make his entrance into the 1988 campaign in his adopted hometown, then fly on to Chicago for a round of interviews and appearances the next day.

Although Bush's intentions have been clear for months, the timing of his formal announcement has been a closely guarded secret within his campaign, withheld for maximum exposure.
