Jeb Bush shuffles campaign staff again

GOP_2016-Bush

For the second time in less than two weeks, Jeb Bush is shuffling the top tier of his 2016 campaign staff, The Wall Street Journal reports.

The job of political director, expected to go to Kentucky-based consultant Scott Jennings, will instead be filled by David James, senior adviser to Mitt Romney’s 2008 and 2012 presidential campaigns. He has also worked at the Republican National Committee and helped lead the Pennsylvania Republican Party.

“After a successful announcement where Jeb really laid out how he is uniquely prepared to fix the problems in Washington, we are happy to be building out a political operation with David, Scott and the rest of the team that will spread that message in the primary and caucus states,” said Tim Miller, a spokesman for Bush.
