The campaign of 2016 GOP Presidential candidate Jeb Bush is struggling to survive, let alone thrive.
Months of turmoil and disappointment have led to poor fundraising and staff cuts, leaving the former Florida Governor on the ropes after fellow Sunshine State rival Senator Marco Rubio absolutely embarrassed Bush at the CNBC debate Wednesday.
Now, a huge, top secret Bush campaign document has been released.
It details future attacks on Rubio, Iowa and New Hampshire strategy, and much more… It also ridicules voters as “having A.D.D.”
According to U.S. News And World Report:
“After the confab, Bush’s team distributed a 45-page PowerPoint presentation to select reporters, summarizing an optimistic view of the race, touting the Republican candidate’s cash and organization, and assuring supporters that early polls are rarely indicative of ultimate success.
But in that leak to select media, the campaign purposely left out more than half of what was furnished behind closed doors.
The full presentation, obtained exclusively by U.S. News, spans 112 pages and includes a trove of new details, including Bush’s internal polling, his vote goal in Iowa and his advertising plan for January.
Additionally, while the slides released to the media outlined Bush’s overarching argument againstFlorida Sen. Marco Rubio – that he’s the GOP’s Barack Obama – the complete offering contains more biting, detailed slights, pointedly questioning the character and ethics of Bush’s home state rival.
The document provides a rare behind-the-curtain look at the gritty details of a campaign at a crucial inflection point.”
The article notes Bush hits Rubio for his ties to wealthy donors and other issues, but a mysterious section makes one wonder what else Bush may attempt to unleash on Rubio.
“The most cryptic slight is left for last: “Those who have looked into Marco’s background in the past have been concerned with what they have found.”
A Bush aide says that line refers to concerns Mitt Romney’s team unearthed when they vetted Rubio for vice president in 2012.”
