After the mass exodus to freedom from Newt Gingrich’s presidential campaign (and how could we really blame them?), more staffers just quit today. Campaign Spokesman R.C. Hammond confirmed to NBC News two members of the finance team, fundraising director Jody Thomas and fundraising consultant Mary Heitman, left the campaign.

“Newt 2012 continues reorganization which is a grass roots driven, substantive solution orientated campaign. We wish the members of the finance team who chose to leave the best, and continue forward as committed as ever,” read the statement issued by the Gingrich team.

Gingrich said he’s determined to stay in the race, despite the dwindling numbers.

The Associated Press is reporting Gingrich is at least $1 million in debt, and is trying to scrape by enough cash together to travel to appearances on the campaign trail. He’s given up the private jets for commercial so you know it must be bad.
