(Newser) – Newt Gingrich’s campaign woes keep piling up: Now two top members of his finance team have departed. Fundraising director Jody Thomas and fundraising consultant Mary Heitman follow 16 other aides who left this month. His press chief says the campaign is "as committed as ever" and spins the departures this way to CNN: “Newt 2012 continues its reorganization to achieve a grassroots-driven, substantive-solutions-orientated campaign." The exodus began about two weeks ago.
