WASHINGTON -- Republican Mitt Romney's foreign policy spokesman, Richard Grenell, has resigned after only a brief stint on Romney's presidential campaign.
The Washington Post reported that the openly gay Grenell had been hounded from the campaign by anti-gay conservatives.
Romney campaign manager Matt Rhoades said in a statement that Grenell, hired last month, decided to leave for personal reasons that he did not specify.
