NBC News reports that very soon after Mitt Romney's loss on Election Night, the campaign's "massive infrastructure" began to come down:

"Aides taking cabs home late that night got rude awakenings when they found the credit cards linked to the campaign no longer worked.

'Fiscally conservative,' sighed one aide the next day."
