MANCHESTER, N.H. -- Three more high-profile staffers left presidential candidate John McCain's national communications staff over the weekend due to the lack of campaign money. Meanwhile, McCain's New Hampshire press contact is being groomed to replace them, according to the Associated Press.
Reached this morning, Jill Hazelbaker, McCain's New Hampshire press secretary, wouldn't comment on whether or not she will take on more responsibilities. But amid speculation that she also would be quitting the campaign, she said she is committed to working for McCain.
"I believe he is a once-in-a-lifetime candidate," Hazelbaker said.
A decision is expected this week.
