Newt Gingrich's campaign team resigns en masse

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republican Newt Gingrich's presidential campaign took a nosedive on Thursday as senior members of his campaign team resigned en masse, his ex-spokesman said.

Rick Tyler, who resigned as spokesman, cited "a difference of opinion on how to move forward" as the reason why he, campaign manager Rob Johnson and others resigned.
