Two Herman Cain Staffers Resign from Campaign

EMMANUEL DUNAND/AFP/Getty Images(MANCHESTER, N.H.) -- Herman Cain’s New Hampshire campaign director -- and only staffer in the state -- Matt Murphy, has resigned, Cain’s Communications Director Ellen Carmichael has confirmed to ABC News.

According to the Union Leader, Jim Zeiler, a campaign regional director, has also resigned.

Murphy told the Union Leader he resigned last Friday due to strategic differences, noting there was no “ill will” toward the Republican presidential candidate.  

“There was a strategic difference and I left the campaign because of those differences.  The differences involved the New Hampshire strategy and how much investment the campaign should put into New Hampshire,” he told the Union Leader.

Carmichael gave this statement to ABC News regarding Murphy’s departure: “Matt's time at Friends of Herman Cain ended amicably and we are in touch still with him.  We are announcing a new hire in the coming days and we are excited about continuing to expand our operations in New Hampshire and across the U.S.”
