Gingrich to Cut Staff

Big changes abound in the Gingrich camp: a third of the staff will be laid off, Newt’s campaign schedule is shrinking, and his manager has been replaced. The presidential campaign has become so strapped for cash that it started charging supporters $50 for a photo and considered cutting staff pay, and now Communications director Joe DeSantis announced the additional changes Tuesday night. “We’re focusing on what it’ll take to win what we’re going to be calling a big-choice convention in August,” he said. Campaign manager Michael Krull was replaced over the weekend by longtime Gingrich staffer Vince Haley.
