McCain faced more staff resignations Monday.
WASHINGTON (CNN) - Sen. John McCain's embattled presidential campaign took another hit Monday when almost his entire press shop resigned their posts.
The decision by Brian Jones, Danny Diaz, Matt David, research director Brian Rogers and South Carolina press secretary Adam Temple to step down was not unexpected, but was yet another sign the Arizona senator will have to rebuild a campaign - that once boasted a roster filled with some of the GOP's most talented political operatives - from scratch.
"It has been my sincere honor and privilege to serve Senator John McCain," Diaz wrote in his departure email. "Best of luck to each and every one of you in the days and weeks ahead."
Today's resignations come less than one week after several senior staffers including Campaign Manager Terry Nelson and Chief Strategist John Weaver stepped down when the Arizona senator sought to restructure the campaign operation.
