Several high-level staffers with Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton were worried about former Governor of Florida Jeb Bush early in the presidential primaries, according to a Wikileaks release Friday.

“Can we discuss the fundraising plans for first quarter? Her original concerns are still present and I think this is mostly an issue for Jen but maybe a conversation would help manage her expectations,” Advisor Huma Abedin wrote Campaign Manager Robby Mook in March of 2015.

Mook responded quickly, asking “Is the issue that she’s doing too much? Too little?”

Abedin responded with two words, “JEB BUSH.”

Campaign Director John Podesta also brought up Jeb in a rough altercation with environmentalist Tom Steyer. “I am deep in the middle of dealing with getting fucked by the NYT, but I didn’t expect to get fucked by you in the NYT. Thanks a lot for jumping us. I hope President Bush helps you reach your climate goals.”
