No matter what might happen in Iowa, New Hampshire, or South Carolina, there was one early primary Jeb Bush was going to easily win: The money primary.
Three top Jeb Bush fundraisers abruptly parted ways with his presidential campaign on Friday, amid internal personality conflicts and questions about the strength of his candidacy, POLITICO has learned.
There are different versions of what transpired. The Florida-based fundraising consultants — Kris Money, Trey McCarley, and Debbie Alexander — have said that they voluntarily quit the campaign and were still working with Bush’s super PAC, Right to Rise Super PAC. Others said the three, who worked under the same contract, were let go because they were no longer needed for the current phase of the campaign.
Politico’s source inside the Bush campaign said “personality conflicts” were to blame and that “they were glad to go.”
Regardless, you don’t usually read these stories coming out of well-oiled, winning campaigns.
