The shakeups in Jon Huntsman’s campaign continue.
Jim McCray, the Republican presidential candidate's national finance consultant, has been sidelined and replaced after a disagreement with senior campaign advisor John Weaver over how much the campaign is spending – a move that has set off a shakeup inside the campaign’s fundraising team, according to a source familiar with the situation.
In a conference call with national donors on Thursday, the campaign announced that Ann Herberger, a former fundraiser for Tim Pawlenty’s now-defunct presidential campaign, had effectively replaced McCray, but said McCray would stay on as a national advisor. Huntsman spokesman Tim Miller emphasized that McCray is still on board, but did not answer questions about the other changes.

"Jim McCray is still part of our campaign," Miller said in a statement to National Journal. "He and John Weaver are friends who have worked several campaigns together."
McCray isn't the only casualty: A fundraiser in Utah -- Huntsman's home state -- and the Bellwether Consulting Group, a well-known GOP fundraising firm, were either let go or quit on Thursday, the source said. More fallout is expected in the next several days.
