Five McCain Press Aides Quit
Is it time to stick the fork in yet? Looks like it's getting closer, according to ABC News.
On Monday, five McCain press aides -- including his three top communications officials -- quit en masse, just days after the campaign lost its chief strategist and campaign manager among dozens of aides being shed as part of aggressive cost-cutting measures.
The aides to resign -- communications director Brian Jones, deputy communications directors Danny Diaz and Matt David, and press aides Adam Temple and Amanda Hennenberg -- all agreed to stay on a few extra days out of loyalty to McCain, and helped him set up his weekend trip to New Hampshire.
Reasons given by the aides were loyalty to the campaign manager McCain replaced last week. But, there was also grumbling about why he bothered to have a national communications staff when he only appears to be running in three states -- New Hampshire, Iowa, and South Carolina.
