Two more top officials leave Kerry's staff

WASHINGTON, Nov. 11 (UPI) -- The turmoil in Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry 's campaign staff increased Tuesday as two top staffers resigned.

Fox News said the resignations of Robert Gibbs, press secretary for the Massachusetts senator, and deputy finance director Carl Chidlow, underscore the unrest that's occurring since Kerry fired campaign manager Jim Jordan Sunday night.

Gibbs will be succeeded by Stephanie Cutter, a former spokeswoman for Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass., and currently spokeswoman for the Democratic National Convention.

Jordan's dismissal, which comes less than three months before voters in Iowa participate in the first-in-the-nation caucuses, was designed to jump-start Kerry's campaign by signaling fund-raisers and activists that he is addressing problems that have caused his campaign to slump.

But Fox said many Democratic strategists say the problems were caused by Kerry, in that he has campaigned as if the nomination was his entitlement while allowing former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean to catapult ahead of him.
