Michele Bachmann’s New Hampshire staffers resign en masse

Michele Bachmann's paid staff in New Hampshire has reportedly quit the campaign en masse, protesting the candidate's lack of commitment in the state.

The resignations, first reported by WMUR's James Pindell, come as Bachmann tries to regain momentum for her struggling Republican nomination bid.

A spokeswoman for Bachmann did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

As The Ticket previously reported, Bachmann has been under fire from conservatives in New Hampshire for not spending more time in the state. Earlier this month, the former Minnesota congresswoman blamed her lack of trips to New Hampshire on votes in Washington—even though she hasn't cast a vote in Congress since August.

The New Hampshire Union Leader ran a blistering editorial slamming Bachmann's excuse and accusing the 2012 hopeful of regarding voters in the state as "rural rubes."
