Jeb Bush’s Campaign Is Reeling: Heilemann

Former President George W. Bush joined his brother Jeb for a campaign event in Houston on Monday, marking the first time that his younger brother's presidential team has allowed the press to see the two together.

The two brothers traded good-natured jabs and vied for their mother's attention in front of about 175 donors who gathered in the town where their father, former President George H.W. Bush, began his political career and where he and his wife winter. The two-day summit,which featured political briefings and strategy sessions, was also used to motivate—and calm—fundraisers after the campaign announced Friday it is cutting payroll it save more than $1 million over the next month.
