Newt Gingrich Finances Cause More Staff Defections
Two fundraisers from Newt Gingrich's campaign have resigned, citing Gingrich's excessive debt. Total defections so far for the self-proclaimed candidate: 18. Unnamed officials familiar with the details of his campaign say:
the former Georgia lawmaker racked up massive travel bills but money had only trickled in since he got into the race earlier this spring.
These officials said that he is at least $1 million in debt.
Gingrich could use his own money to keep going. He is brushing off the departures as "gossip," saying "No one has a clue why they left."
I don't think the "why" matters, given the number of quitters. When 18 people leave a campaign, it's fairly obvious there's something very wrong.
Time to fold Newt. No one's paying attention to your campaign because you are old news with no recent accomplishments and a past record of taking the worst positions on policy. Do we even need to mention his personal life?
