KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Newt Gingrich's presidential campaign doesn't want Tennessee Sen. Stacey Campfield to be a delegate at the GOP's national convention.
The Knoxville News Sentinel reports the campaign's director of delegate access sent a letter to the Tennessee Republican Party's State Executive Committee earlier this week concerning the Knoxville Republican.
Campfield, who served as a state co-chair for Gingrich's campaign, switched his support to candidate Rick Santorum days before the March 6 "Super Tuesday" election.
John Fluharty said in his letter that Campfield's actions resulted in Tennesseans who supported Gingrich erroneously voting for a delegate candidate they believed would support Gingrich throughout the nominating process.
The letter further states the campaign has asked Campfield to resign his position as a delegate, but he has refused.
