"I am committed to running the substantive, solutions-oriented campaign I set out to run earlier this spring. The campaign begins anew Sunday in Los Angeles." That's what Gingrich wrote on his facebook page alluding to the fact that all his staff retired today!
The top staff of Newt Gingrich's nascent presidential campaign abandoned their candidate Thursday, in a group resignation that followed a series of disagreements over the former House speaker's commitment to the GOP race.
His effort has been troubled from the outset, when he came under fire for criticizing the House GOP's proposal to replace Medicare with a voucher plan and for news that he had a credit line of as much as $500,000 at Tiffany & Co., the posh jewelry store. In recent weeks, as competitors scoured the early voting states, Gingrich took off for a two-week cruise in Greece.
"I am committed to running the substantive, solutions-oriented campaign I set out to run earlier this spring," Gingrich wrote. "The campaign begins anew Sunday in Los Angeles." Gingrich will be in California for a Jewish Republican gala where he will speak on the Middle East and U.S. foreign policy.
