Many have voiced their unhappiness with Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich’s decision to pursue the 2012 Republican nod for the Presidency. Unfortunately for Gingrich, some of his campaign’s top advisers apparently count themselves among the unbelievers.
A large number of Gingrich’s strategists, advisors and senior staff members recently left the campaign en masse, some to support other candidates.
“Among the senior staff members Gingrich is losing are spokesman Rick Tyler and campaign manager Rob Johnson, along with other strategists. Insiders say Gingrich and senior aides were unable to agree on the direction of the campaign,” FoxNews.com reported on Thursday.
“Former Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue, who was a co-chairman of Gingrich’s campaign until Thursday, has now joined former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty’s team.”
The mass exodus puts Gingrich in a difficult position, but on Thursday Gingrich assured his Facebook fans he is still in the race. “I am committed to running the substantive, solutions-oriented campaign I set out to run earlier this spring,” he wrote.
“The source said those resignations came following disagreements about how to use campaign resources including the candidate’s time,” the article read.
