Wasn’t it just like two weeks ago that Newt said he was running a once in generation Presidential campaign? Well this only happens about once in a generation to a major Presidential campaign, if that.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich’s presidential campaign imploded Thursday afternoon with his entire senior staff resigning en masse, according to multiple sources familiar with the moves. “When the campaign and the candidate disagree on the path, they’ve got to part ways,” said Rick Tyler, a longtime Gingrich spokesman who was among those who left the campaign. Tyler….Rob Johnson….Dave Carney….Katon Dawson….Sam Dawson….Craig Schoenfeld….Walter Whetsell….Scott Rials have all stepped aside. Much of Gingrich’s early state operation was also headed for the exits, according to a one senior campaign source.
