Iowa City, Iowa (CNN) – Mere days after two top staffers resigned from Herman Cain's presidential campaign, two others have also called it quits.
Tina Goff, the Iowa organizational director, confirms to CNN that she left the campaign on Friday. Goff also said that another Iowa staffer - Straw Poll coordinator Kevin Hart - resigned that day. The Cain campaign confirmed both developments.
The Cain campaign downplayed the significance of Goff's title. "She was a junior-level staffer," claimed Communications Director Ellen Carmichael. She said the campaign had not yet hired a director for the state, but that it soon will.
Goff told CNN that the conservative businessman "wasn't willing to make the commitment to Iowa necessary to win the [Ames] straw poll." That contest is seen as an early test of success in Iowa.
Goff added that she was concerned by the amount of money and time the Cain campaign was committing to that straw poll. However, she declined to discuss specifics.
"I didn't want it to go this way," Goff said. "I'm very sad about it."
But Carmichael emphatically denies the notion that Cain was not putting in enough resources to win in Iowa.
Citing upcoming events in Iowa on Sunday, Carmichael said, "Mister Cain will have been to Iowa 22 times. Any insinuation that he is not committed to Iowa is highly false."
The fresh defections follow those of two other Cain staffers who recently resigned. Matt Murphy left as the New Hampshire state director and Jim Zeiler resigned as Cain's regional director.
In comments that echo those of Goff in Iowa, Murphy reportedly said that Cain refused to mount a serious effort in New Hampshire. The Cain campaign denied that assertion.
"As our first report showed last night we've done quite well. We are continuing to come up with our new staff across the country, including Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina," Carmichael said.
"These are just two people who are not a good fit for our organization."
On Friday, the Cain campaign reports it raised $2.46 million in the second quarter between April and June. Over 27,000 individuals contributed from all 50 states, the campaign said in a statement.
