Democratic presidential candidate Julián Castro is preparing to lay off his New Hampshire and South Carolina teams as he narrows his focus to Iowa and Nevada, Politico reported Monday.
The campaign reportedly told staffers in the two states their final day would be next week.
News surfaced last week that the former San Antonio mayor and secretary of Housing and Urban Development under former President Obama was supporting staffers in seeking other jobs.
Castro qualified for all four past debates but has struggled in polls and fundraising. He announced last month that if he did not hit $800,000 in donations over the last 10 days of October, he would drop out of the race. The campaign met that goal but still lags behind top-tier candidates.
