Updating McCain's Campaign Crisis

** It's not clear how many staffers brought to the campaign by departed manager Terry Nelson will remain. Three work in the press office -- Brian Jones, Danny Diaz and Matt David. Nelson's hand-picked deputy campaign manager resigned today, along with Rob Jesmer, McCain's political director.

** McCain and interim manager Rick Davis held a conference call with the campaign's national finance team this afternoon. Davis just released a short statement saying that "the campaign has always been about John McCain and his vision for reducing federal spending, defending traditional values, and winning the war against Islamic extemists. Today we are moving forward with John's optimistic vision for our country's future." In other words -- McCain isn't dropping out.
