(CNN) - Top fundraisers for Republican Newt Gingrich's presidential campaign resigned Tuesday, the campaign confirmed to CNN.
Fundraising director Jody Thomas and fundraising consultant Mary Heitman left the team. The two defections follow 16 resignations earlier in the month when top aides stepped down over disagreements with the former House Speaker.
Gingrich press secretary RC Hammond said the campaign will continue.
"Newt 2012 continues its reorganization to achieve a grassroots driven substantive solutions orientated campaign," Hammond told CNN. "We wish the members of the finance team who decided to leave the best. The campaign continues forward as committed as ever."

That's it. Without the money coming in, this campaign has been "Newt"-ered. Now it is up to the remaining clowns in the Grand Old ("The best Government money can buy") Party to provide political theater for the rest of the year.
18 resignations, and he still has no clue.
I know it is inappropriate to take pleasure in another's misfortunes, but I may have to make an exception in Newt's case. This guy has done so much damage to so many over the years, and this is a cosmic example of what has gone around finally coming around. I especially enjoy his spin on these developments. I imagine Bill Clinton is loving this soap opera as well.
It's OK Newt, Callista still loves you; as long as the Tiffany's account is still open!
Newt, dude, take a hint!
He's a loser. He lost. The only one who thought he had a chance was him.
Bye-bye Newt. Go crawl back under the rock.
He is wasting his time.
HA HA HA! Even his fellow Repukes hate this adulterer and he's too stupid to see that he should drop out. His career is over and hopefully he'll be outta work soon (and if we're lucky BROKE for dumping money into a campaign that is going nowhere).
The ship is sinking! The ship is sinking! Gee I hope the Capt. goes down with the ship.
Wow! What will it take for this arrogant has-been to call it quits?
Nobody with a fully functioning brain believes you.
Pop goes the weasel.... poor Newt. Back to publishing mockumentaries that nobody takes serious. But you still might make enough money for another cruise and an extension of Tiffany's account.
If newt can not run his campaign, How can he run a country??
Re-aranging deck chairs on the Titanic.
I hope this DOB will finally just go off under a rock somewhere and finally rot
hope this DOB will finally just go off under a rock somewhere and finally rot
Newt will just have to write a few more wikipedia-based books or send out a whole bunch of those infamous "business person of the year" awards where you have to pay him $1000 to get the cheap toy gavel.
And to think that some people want this man to be President of the United States....
What a idiot Newt is
BWAHHH HA HA!!! Stick a fork in the Grand Adulterer!
Poor Newt just can't catch a break. Next thing you know the jewelry store will be cutting his credit line down to 1/4 million!!!
I hope Gingrich stays in the race. And I hope Palin enters . America needs to laugh at this time in history.
newt, what the heck ya doin ?
it's oh-ver, it's ohh-verr, it's OHHHH-VERRRRRRRR!
The line up of Republican hopefulls are all whacky but Gingrich and Palin are seriously funny. It's like watching Saturday Nite Live in real time when they emote.
