Michele Bachmann’s New Hampshire team quits en masse

Staff members in New Hampshire for presidential candidate Michele Bachmann have resigned en masse, a Republican familiar with the situation said on Friday, in a fresh blow to her 2012 hopes.

All of the staffers, said to number six, resigned on Thursday, the Republican said.

New Hampshire’s WMUR television said the reason given was due to the Bachmann campaign’s lack of focus on New Hampshire, which holds the country’s first primary election.

“It certainly underscores the impression that New Hampshire isn’t a priority for her. She’s totally written us off,” said former Republican state legislator Fran Wendelboe.
