STILL IN IT?

Gingrich Slashes Third of Staff

Here’s some change we can believe in: Newt Gingrich is scaling back his campaign stops, letting go of a third of his full-time staff, and has booted his manager, Politico reports. Gingrich aides say the moves are a “big-choice convention” strategy. The changes are what communications director Joe DeSantis says that the former speaker needs to do to win the convention. Gingrich is struggling in third place in the delegate count, and his campaign has more debt than cash. Here’s another change: instead of attacking the other candidates, Gingrich will employ a more “positive and ideas-focused” strategy.
