Polls in South Carolina aren't closed yet but according to a report in POLITICO, a number of high level Jeb Bush campaign staffers have already submitted their resumes for employment elsewhere.
Several Jeb Bush campaign workers are already shopping their résumés with Florida political consultants as expectations mount inside his team that their candidate won’t push on after South Carolina.
“I can unequivocally tell you that people are looking for work, because they say they’ve been led to believe that they won’t have a job because the campaign won’t be around any longer or their jobs won’t because the campaign won’t have any money,” said one Republican who helps run one of the Florida campaigns and who is a Bush donor.
Four separate and senior political consultants in Florida said they have been negotiating with potential employees who are preparing for the end of the Bush campaign.
Despite the Bush family being popular in the Palmetto state, Bush is polling at just 10.7 percent according to the Real Clear Politics average.
