Jeb Bush campaign in reboot mode as salaries, staff cut

U.S. Republican presidential candidate and former Governor Jeb Bush speaks at the North Texas Presidential Forum in Plano, TexasBy Steve Holland WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Republican Jeb Bush’s struggling presidential campaign is cutting salaries across the board and reducing staff in a money-saving effort intended to concentrate resources on early voting states, an internal memo said on Friday. The memo, seen by Reuters, said payroll costs were being slashed by 40 percent and staff at the campaign’s Miami headquarters drastically cut back with some workers offered positions at reduced pay in states that vote early in the nominating process, such as New Hampshire, Iowa, South Carolina and Nevada. The move follows a dramatic fall in Republican voters’ support for Bush’s attempt to secure his party’s nomination for the November 2016 election and to become the third member of the famous Bush family to win the White House.
