Bush Campaign Sources: Campaign Out of Money. Pay Ends Saturday.

This is pretty remarkable. Sources close to the Bush campaign are beginning to leak about a call last night. I’m told the Bush team is out of money. Pay for campaign staff will end on Saturday. The campaign is all but over.

Additionally, after having hundreds of millions of dollars on hand, the Bush Super PAC has less than $15 million from what I am being told.

What a waste.

Ironically, if Bush really wants to have an impact on the race, given that his campaign is broke, he should publicly get out of the race today. This would be like Rich Perry in 2012, who got out, cast his support to Gingrich at the last minute, and saw Gingrich storm into first place in South Carolina.

Bush could be the king maker if he gets out today.

His campaign is broke, staff is being told they will not be paid after Saturday, and Bush could shake things up significantly if he gets out now.

UPDATED: Bush campaign vehemently denies there was a call or that the campaign is out of money. I stand by the story.
