Newt's Campaign Unravels

Not only is Newt Gingrich so broke that he's taken to charging $50 just to be photographed with him, print reporters have given up on him.
Newt Gingrich has lost his last embedded print reporters, reporters on the trail confirm. The last two print reporters covering Gingrich full-time on the trail -- from POLITICO and the Atlanta Journal Constitution -- pulled out on Friday. The Associated Press pulled its embed after Tuesday's Illinois primary.
And one-third of his staffers were given the ax yesterday.
Facing the reality of plummeting poll numbers and dwindling financial resources, Newt Gingrich's presidential campaign announced Tuesday evening it would be cutting back on staff and curtailing the former House Speaker's public appearances. Spokesman RC Hammond told CBS News the campaign would lay off around one-third of its staff.
