who will staff for mccain if he can't use lobbyists?

A crisis is sweeping through the John McCain campaign - a self-inflicted one. Seems McCain has put in place a policy that keeps campaign workers from "lobbying, representing a foreign agent or participating in outside political groups." And they've had to fire several people for this, most recently Craig Shirley and Eric Burgeson.

My question: who will work for McCain if he can't hire lobbyists? I mean, it's not like there is a groundswell of selfless volunteers waiting to work for McCain... And McCain's political life is intimately intertwined with lobbyists, to an extent unusual even by the low standards of politicians.
