JebBush.com is redirecting to DonaldJTrump.com

The 2016 domain wars aren't slowing down. Multiple GOP presidential candidates have already had popular domain names scooped out from under them, and it looks the Jeb Bush campaign is the latest to fall prey to hijackers, as JebBush.com now redirects to DonaldJTrump.com.

It's unclear if the domain — a $250,000 destination that Bush reportedly declined to register earlier in the campaign, opting for jeb2016.com instead — was purchased by the Trump campaign directly or merely supporters, but it's an embarrassing faux pas for Bush, who has occasionally struggled with forays into the digital world.

Previously, the domain CarlyFiorina.org was swept away by someone who wanted to highlight layoffs under the former HP CEO, while Rand Paul was reportedly forced to pay out more than $100,000 for RandPaul.com. Currently, the domain TedCruz.com goes to a pro-Obama site.
