"Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush is drastically slashing campaign spending, including an across-the-board pay cut for staff, and focusing more narrowly on early states, as the one-time front-runner seeks to salvage his bid for the GOP nomination.

The moves will reduce the campaign's payroll by 40 percent, while also cutting travel costs by 20 percent and eliminating extraneous overhead spending. Most campaign officials were told of the cost-cutting on Friday.

The changes mark a significant setback for a campaign that spent months building a large operation, but there are no signs Bush is on the verge of withdrawing from the race."


Now I dont know much about running presidential campaigns.... But when someone cuts off a fifth of their staff and half of their payroll, it means that money is tight.... And when money is tight, it means that a candidate may soon bail out of the race if they dont increase fundraising fast.

The article states that 'there are no signs Bush is on the verge of withdrawing from the race.', but I think a month from now if this keeps up and Bush doesnt fix his money issues, he may have of pull out of the race himself....

He had 130+m. He is NOT hurting for money.

Now, what this all means... well, he needs to push HARD in early states. Go big.

The last candidate I remember cutting salaries was Rick Perry when he was really tight on money, and his campaign ended up being the first one to fold in the race. http://www.breitbart.com...

I still think he is my bet - Bush that is. Wait for the first couple primary's and reassess. This Trump/Carson stuff is the worst of the base being loud as ever.

I agree that Jeb Bush is wading in deep waters. But I don't think money is his problem. He's simply unable to connect with the Republican base and he isn't going to get the nomination whether he drops out or stays in.
