Dawson told CNN that Perry’s team relocated to his own public affairs office after the campaign space in Columbia was given to a “hot new client” by a realtor.


The state chairman, who said he provided the initial space to Perry in his retainer fee, told CNN he is working on a volunteer basis and hasn't been paid for several weeks. 

Perry’s campaign has lost staff in other early voting states of Iowa and New Hampshire after saying last month it could not afford to pay staff. Since then, some staff are back on the payroll. 

The former Texas governor has struggled to gain traction for his second White House bid, and will be in the undercard event at his party's second presidential debate next week.
