With his campaign in the red, and his superPAC having run through Sheldon Adelson’s $16.5 million, Newt has fired his campaign manager, Michael Krull, and a third of his full-time staff. He’s making Vince Haley campaign manager. Haley was already both deputy campaign manager and a policy adviser, so kind of a two-fer.
Newt is also scaling back his travel to the remaining primary states. He says he’ll get his message out through social media, videos, and the Internet.
Kind of like that other scary giant head, the Wizard of Oz. But we already know what’s behind this curtain.
