McCain campaigned in New Hampshire Thursday.
DERRY, New Hampshire (CNN) – Despite suffering a second round of campaign staff departures in as many weeks, Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona says his presidential campaign is “going fine.”
“We’ve had our ups and downs,” McCain said at a campaign stop in Derry, New Hampshire. “But we’re very happy with our political base…Everywhere I go in New Hampshire, Iowa, and South Carolina, there’s great enthusiasm.”
The resignations of Russ Schriefer and Stuart Stevens, veteran ad-makers who worked on President Bush’s campaigns in 2000 and 2004, were reported Wednesday by the Wall Street Journal. The departures follow those of McCain’s campaign manager and chief strategist two weeks ago.
