Jeb Bush expands New Hampshire operation ahead of key primary

via @learyreports

Jeb Bush, still struggling to find his footing in the season of Trump, is putting his focus on New Hampshire.

Today, his campaign said it had added eight paid staffers in the state, making 20 total.

"We added 4 new regional offices in Littleton, Laconia, Dover, Keene. We have 5 offices in total including Manchester HQ," the campaign said. "Gov. Bush is committed to running a New Hampshire campaign focused on building the strong grassroots support necessary to be successful in February. Our operation will continue to grow in the coming months as we get closer to primary day. The addition of staff and regional field offices throughout the state allows us to build on what is already the best organization in the Republican field."

WMUR reports that Bush returns to New Hampshire next week.
