Democratic presidential campaign dropout Jim Webb has hired former Draft Biden national finance director Sam Jones to lead a fundraising operation – the latest signs signal the former Virginia senator is mulling an independent White House run.
"After weeks of study, including consultations with ballot experts and independent activists around the country, we have a handle on what it takes to give voters in every state a real choice," Webb spokesman Craig Crawford said Thursday, the Richmond Times-Dispatch
"We are so pleased that Sam Jones is coming on board to help us examine what is now the decisive issue: how to pay for it."
The Dallas fundraiser built a national network of donors last year to try to boost a Biden presidential bid; Biden nixed a run
last Oct. 21.
Webb's team also said it has partnered with Aristotle, a political technology company, The Washington Times reports.
Webb dropped his bid for the Democratic presidential nomination in October, but has left the door open
for an independent run.
