Newt Gingrich's Team Bails out

The entire top echelon of New Gingrich's presidential campaign resigned on Thursday, a stunning mass exodus that left his bid for the Republican nomination in tatters.

Rick Tyler, the former U.S. House speaker's spokesman, said that he, campaign manager Rob Johnson and senior strategists had all quit, along with aides in the early primary and caucus states of Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina.

Other officials said Gingrich was informed that his entire high command was quitting in a meeting at his campaign headquarters in Washington. They cited differences over the direction of the campaign.

Scott Rials, a longtime aide who joined the departure, said he doubted Gingrich's ability to win the nomination.

If he's thinking of backing out, he won't announce it for awhile. He'll want to milk it for every penny it's worth.

It is too soon to see how it will affect other than it puts Mr. Cain in 3rd place. However, this is a great day. There is hope for America and it is nice to see this trouble-making swell melt-down.
