Three top strategists left Sen. Bernie Sanders' 2020 presidential campaign on Tuesday, including the chief strategist of his 2016 White House bid, due to creative differences, reports the New York Times' Jonathan Martin.

Details: Tad Devine, Mark Longabaugh and Julian Mulvey, who work together as a political consulting firm, all had key roles in Sanders' first run for the White House. They told NBC News they decided to leave because they "just didn't have a meeting of the minds." Martin also reported that the sudden departure angered remaining 2020 staffers, who believe that it could impact Sanders' fundraising total.
