It's just not going to be an easy campaign for GOP presidential contender Newt Gingrich. The Georgian and former Speaker of the House suffered another blow today as his campaign finance team reportedly quit, according to the Associated Press.
Gingrich also watched several high ranking campaign officials, including his campaign manager, quit en masse earlier this month after internal disagreements over how the campaign was being handled, according to ABC News.
Gingrich's entire paid staff in Iowa also resigned, citing his commitment to the campaign, according to the ABC News report.
Gingrich announced his intent to run for the Republican presidential nomination on May 9 via a Twitter post to followers.
Shortly after his announcement, Gingrich spent two weeks on a Mediterranean cruise, irking supporters and staffers and leading many to question his true intentions.
It seems the writing is on the wall for Gingrich, and the first primary ballot has yet to be cast.
