McCain Shakes Up 2008 Presidential Campaign Staff

Washington (AP) -- Republican John McCain has reorganized his presidential campaign, cutting staff in every department after raising just $11.2 million in the last three months.

McCain’s tally in the second financial quarter, which ended Saturday, is expected to trail those of Mitt Romney and Rudy Giuliani.

Once considered the candidate to beat for the Republican nomination, McCain now reports he has just $2 million cash on hand for his presidential bid.

Officials say perhaps as many as 100 staffers will be let go, and senior aides will be subject to pay cuts.
