ATLANTA (AP) — Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is blaming a mass resignation from his presidential campaign on a "strategic difference" concerning what strategy to employ in the race for the 2012 Republican nomination.
Speaking outside his house in suburban Virginia a day after several key aides quit, Gingrich said he's determined to stay in the race and that he won't be deterred by the instability in his campaign operation.
Gingrich said the differences involved campaign strategy. He told reporters, in his words, "There is a fundamental strategic difference between the traditional consulting community and the kind of campaign I want to run." He also said that "we'll find out over the next year who's right."
