All of Michele Bachmann’s paid New Hampshire staffers quit her campaign Friday, Politico reports.
Bachmann did not have a large campaign staff in the Granite State and had focused much of her efforts in Iowa, but the news comes as a blow to a campaign that has floundered since briefly tasting success in the Iowa Straw Poll.
Her staff told reporters on Friday that they had intended to quit sooner, but waited so as not to damage her image. But by this week, they’d had enough frustration with the direction of the campaign and its lack of focus on New Hampshire.
The staffers still say they support the Congresswoman’s bid for the presidency.
Among those leaving are senior advisors Jeff Chidestar and Karen Testerman, director of operations Mattheu LeDuc, and field directors Caroline Gigler and Tom Lukacz,
Bachmann has a history of campaign and legislative staff turnover. In September, her top campaign staff left abruptlyand her pollster quit in early October.
Since winning her congressional seat in 2006, Bachmann has had five congressional chiefs of staff, five press secretaries, four legislative directors and three communications directors.
