A source tells CNN mores staffers will depart McCain’s campaign next week.
WASHINGTON (CNN) - CNN has learned more staff members from Sen. John McCain’s struggling presidential bid are expected to depart the campaign by Monday, the latest in a string of setbacks for the Arizona Republican’s once surefire candidacy.
A source tells CNN’s Candy Crowley at least one senior staffer is among those who plan to call it quits by early next week.
The news comes days after McCain’s top two strategists were forced out following bleak second quarter fundraising numbers and excessive spending that left the campaign with a paltry $2 million cash on hand and $1.75 million in debt.
The campaign must officially report its financial status to the Federal Elections Commission by this Sunday.
Meanwhile, news also surfaced Thursday that Florida State Rep. Bob Allen, a state co-chairman for McCain, was arrested for allegedly soliciting sex acts. Allen denies the charges and told CNN affiliate WFTV the incident was "a very big misunderstanding."
McCain gets back on the campaign trail Friday, slated to visit the early-voting state of New Hampshire.
