Amid money woes, top Bush campaign aide let go

Christine Ciccone, the COO of the organization, is the first high profile aide to leave the organization.

Amid financial trouble plaguing Jeb Bush's campaign, a high ranking official has been let go. Christine Ciccone, the COO of the organization, is the first high profile aide to leave the organization.

Ciccone "was really important, she was high up in the campaign, she ran the headquarters," an adviser not involved in day-to-day operations told NBC News.

Ciccone made a little more than $12,000 per month, according to FEC records. But like much of the staff, her pay was reduced at the end of August.
