Michele Bachmann’s campaign manager responded late Friday to reports that the Republican presidential contender’s New Hampshire staff resigned en masse:
“We have a great team in New Hampshire and we have not been notified that anyone is leaving the campaign,” Bachmann campaign manager Keith Nahigian said in a statement. “We look forward to spending more time in the Granite State between now and the primary, but our campaign has emphasized that our main focus is the first-in-the-nation caucus state of Iowa and we are continuing to build efforts there. While she will campaign in other states, Michele will spend the majority of her time in Iowa, doing what she does better than all the other candidates – retail politics – leading up to the all important caucuses.”
Update: The New York Times is reporting that Jeff Chidester, Bachmann’s campaign manager in New Hampshire, is in fact leaving.
