Jeb Bush’s presidential campaign raised $13.4 million in the third quarter, an aide told CNN, a haul that could help the former Florida governor quiet concerns about the state of his campaign.
The question for Bush, who has built a formidable campaign with top-flight staff in all the early states, is whether he can sustain it.
Bush has $10 million cash-on-hand, the campaign aide said.
True, this should calm some of the old GOP money that supports Bush, but he’s not out burying his opponents with his fund-raising numbers, which was the original plan.
Bush is still a million behind Marco Rubio in cash on hand. Both are trailing Ted Cruz, who continues to run a quiet, smart campaign and has $13.5 million in cash on hand.
As for Jeb, he’s been spending like the trust-fund baby that he is but will now have to endure the horror of flying commercial.
