The Arizona senator's campaign staffers are dropping like flies.

Two more senior aides to Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., resigned today.

The latest to jump ship are McCain's Political Director Rob Jesmer, formerly the regional political director for the RNC, and Deputy Campaign Manager Reed Galen, who was previously director of advance and scheduling for Bush-Cheney 2004.

That makes four resignations of senior advisors in the last 24 hours.

In addition, Mark Salter, McCain's former Senate chief of staff who helped him write four books, will take a reduced, unpaid role in the campaign.
