The 2020 presidential campaign of former Rep. Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke (D-TX) has lost two top aides in recent days, according to a report.

Progressive operative Becky Bond, who worked on O’Rourke’s failed U.S. Senate bid against incumbent Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), and her deputy Zack Malitz, have split from the campaign at a time when campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon moves to “professionalize” operations, per BuzzFeed News.

“They were not only instrumental to the historic Texas Senate race but they agreed to help get us off the ground in this monumental undertaking of running a grassroots campaign for president in every part of the country,” he said. “Becky and Zack remain close friends of the campaign, and true to form, they have already joined our army of grassroots volunteers who are signing up for shifts and committing to electing Beto president.”
