About a dozen senior campaign staffers for Rudy Giuliani are forgoing their January paychecks, a sign of possible money trouble for the Republican presidential candidate and last year's national front-runner. Giuliani told reporters Friday that the staffers volunteered to work for free to stretch campaign funds. While he has fundraisers scheduled this week, Giuliani's stock has gone down since he virtually ignored Iowa and New Hampshire, where Mike Huckabee and John McCain won. He's concentrating on Florida, which votes Jan. 29, to give him momentum into the 22-state Super Duper primaries on Feb. 5, but it's an unconventional and costly strategy because of the expense of TV ads. Here's the AP paycheck story, which also says Giuliani has moved his handful of paid staffers out of Michigan and South Carolina to Florida.
