Jeb Slashes Campaign Salaries

Jeb Bush’s presidential campaign cut payroll spending by 40 percent this week, moving some senior advisers to volunteer roles and cutting salaries for all “but the most entry level staff.” A memo sent to staffers said travel costs would also be slashed, and that the campaign would trim 45 percent of spending proposed in June for activities that are not directly voter or media outreach. Officials told Bloomberg News the restructuring was part of an effort to shift more resources to early primary states.
