Bush Campaign Loses Chief Operating Officer

October 30, 2015 3:19 p.m.

The chief operating officer of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush’s struggling presidential campaign is out, according to a Friday report in the Wall Street Journal.

Christine Ciccone was responsible for logistics and got paid about $12,000 a month.

“We are grateful to have had Christine on the team, we respect her immensely,” Bush spokesman Tim Miller told the Journal.

This comes about a week after reports that Bush was downsizing his staff at the campaign’s Miami headquarters and slashing payroll by 40 percent.

The talks of money trouble come despite the fact that the super PAC supporting Bush’s candidacy, Right to Rise, is one of the best funded among 2016 candidates.
