GOP committee shake-up elevates an aide to Bush

The White House moved rapidly Thursday to shore up the troubled Republican National Committee, installing a top aide to Vice-President George Bush as deputy national chairman.

Richard Bond will in effect be the chief operating officer of the committee, and his appointment is expected to clip the powers of chairman Richard Richards. Mr. Bond replaces Charles Bailey, a close associate of Mr. Richards, who resigned to return to private political consulting.

Richards has come under attack recently for not keeping closer watch on some controversial committee activities. And he was scolded by the White House last week for remarks he made that hinted President Reagan might not run for reelection and that Budget Director David Stockman and Richard Allen were probably on their way out of the administration.
