Faced with a mounting debt, California Gov. Pete Wilson has asked his top presidential campaign aide to bring down spending in a restructuring likely to mean layoffs, sources said Monday.
Wilson ordered the changes in two weekend conversations with Craig Fuller, his campaign chairman, the sources said.
One Republican who informally advises the Wilson camp, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the campaign's debt was about $1 million. The official said Anne LeGassick, Wilson's finance chairwoman, was likely to be demoted.
Another adviser, however, said Monday night that LeGassick had informed friends in the campaign she was likely to resign rather than accept a lesser role.
Wilson spokesman Dan Schnur said that the financial review was just beginning and that he was not aware of any personnel decisions.
