ATLANTA (AP) -- Four top staffers have left Republican Rep. Phil Gingrey's campaign for Georgia's open U.S. Senate seat.

Political consultant Chip Lake said Tuesday that he and three others made the decision after coming to a "crossroads in the campaign." Lake says he has nothing but respect for Gingrey and that differences of opinion led to the decision.

Lake says the others who left are campaign manager John Porter, political director David Allen and adviser Justin Tomczak.

In a statement, Gingrey says he's grateful for the team's work on his campaign and "energized by the support and encouragement I continue to receive."

Also running in the Republican primary are Reps. Jack Kingston of Savannah and Paul Broun of Athens, former Secretary of State Karen Handel and former Dollar General CEO David Perdue.
