Jeb Bush’s Chief Operating Officer Quits Campaign Job

Christine Ciccone, the chief operating officer for Jeb Bush’s campaign, is leaving the team as the former Florida governor dramatically cuts costs and asserts himself as the Republican establishment frontrunner.

Ciccone was being paid roughly $12,000 a month but is departing the campaign after the campaign notified employees that they were reducing their payroll by 40 percent, according to a report from the Wall Street Journal.

It is unclear whether Ciccone decided to quit on her own or was let go by the Bush operation.

She had ties to the Bush family after working in the George W. Bush White House Office of Legislative Affairs Governmental Affairs Committee.

After leaving a government job, Ciccone became the Vice President of Government relations at the lobbying firm Honeywell before moving to a position as Senior Vice President of External Relations for the USEC.

“We are grateful to have had Christine on the team, we respect her immensely,” Bush spokesman Tim Miller told the Journal.
