Like Newt Gingrich, Herman Cain Loses Staff In Iowa

Cain loses several senior staffers in Iowa

Herman Cain’s presidential run could be going the way of the Newt Gingrich campaign.

Last night, the Iowa Republican reported that several of Cain’s senior staffers in Iowa resigned from their posts, just days after the campaign was dealt a similar blow in New Hampshire.

Tina Goff, who worked for the Cain campaign as Iowa Director, submitted her resignation yesterday, as did Cain’s Straw Poll Coordinator, Kevin Hall. Goff said she was stepping down because the campaign had refused to make a serious go at the Iowa caucus, the first in the nation’s primary season.

Goff and Hall previously worked for Fred Thompson’s failed presidential run in 2008 before helping Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad win another term in 2010.

The Iowa Republican writes that the Cain campaign in the state and nationally “seems to be unraveling” in the wake of other resignations. This week, Cain’s New Hampshire Director, Matt Murphy, left his post. Jim Zeller, a regional director, also quit.

This week, Cain campaign spokeswoman Ellen Carmichael told Politico that the New Hampshire staffers would be replaced quickly.

Despite the losses in staff, the former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza has polled well in recent weeks, finishing third in a recent Des Moines Register poll. The Cain campaign still expects a strong showing in Iowa.
