Perry loses another Iowa staffer

Source: The Hill

Rick Perryís top Iowa staffer has jumped ship to Rick Santorumís campaign, leaving the former Texas governor with just one paid staffer in the first nominating state.

Santorumís team confirmed that Karen Fesler, Perryís former Iowa co-chair, has joined its effort in the state after she spent 2012 running Santorumís Missouri effort. ... Feslerís departure comes one week after Perry lost another top Iowa staffer, Sam Clovis, to the Trump campaign. Fesler had previously worked on Clovisís brief 2014 Senate bid in Iowa.

Itís the latest in staffing woes for Perry, who reportedly stopped paying most of his campaign staff. The Des Moines Register reported on Monday that Perry now only has one paid staffer in Iowa.
...
Perry jumped into the field looking to build on his brief 2012 campaign, when he shot up to as high as 38 percent nationally in late August, 2011, in a NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll. But he crashed back down to Earth after a panned debate performance ... This cycle, he hasnít eclipsed 5 percent at the polls nationally since October and is an essential lock to finish outside of the top 10 ahead of Septemberís CNN debate, polling between 1 and 2 percent.

5. FROM Perry TO Santorum?

I guess Santorum is sinking less fast the Perry which keeps her working for another month or two.

6. Perry needs to pack it in ASAP.

Does he really think his new eyeglasses will make voters forget his infamous "Oops!" moment?

12. Yes, Perry has the SuperPAC funds to drag this out a bit longer, but his staff has moved on and he

will not qualify for the next debate. At some point, he's going to have to move on.
