Confirmed: Bachmann's NH Staff Left

It doesn't bode well for Michele Bachmann's campaign that no one knew the entire New Hampshire paid staff had left. The resignation of Bachmann's team was first reported Friday by New Hampshire television station WMUR, but when asked about it, Bachmann called the story “shocking” and denied it was true. But Bachmann's former New Hampshire campaign director, Jeff Chidester, said he quit a week ago and told the national campaign. At least three, and possibly four, other staffers left. One, Carolilne Gilger, Bachmann's southern state field director, is joining Rick Perry's campaign.
