“The manner in which some in the national team conducted themselves towards Team-NH was rude, unprofessional, dishonest, and at times cruel,” the letter reads. “But more concerning was how abrasive, discourteous, and dismissive some within the national team were towards many New Hampshire citizens.”

The shakeup was first reported by New Hampshire’s WMUR-TV. Bachmann, a Republican representative from Minnesota, initially denied it and suggested the story had been fed to the media by one of her opponents’ campaigns.
