Donald Trump's campaign "seems to have one hot mess after another," Ted Cruz's national spokesman Ron Nehring said Wednesday, insisting that the Texas senator's campaign is "well organized" for the remaining GOP presidential primaries.

"Here we are seven weeks from the end of the primary contest, and they've got people who are quitting and that are getting fired and moving in and out," Nehring told CNN's "New Day" program.

Last month, Trump hired campaign veteran Paul Manafort, a veteran of Republican conventions, to oversee his fight for delegates as he scrambles to lock down the 1,237 majority he needs to clinch the nomination ahead of this summer's national convention.

The campaign also announced last week that Rick Wiley, who previously managed Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's campaign, had been hired as national political director, overseeing the campaign's field operations.

After that, Trump's national field director, Stuart Jolly, resigned on Monday, the night before New York's primary, but Trump's campaign staff said the moves are all a "natural evolution" as the campaign advances.

Nehring, though, on Wednesday said the confusion will be a plus for the Cruz campaign.

"They're going to be still working on how to get their email on their phone while we continue to open field offices in the states that are coming up to vote," Nehring told the program. "The Trump campaign seems to be operating with the same efficiency as, you know, Trump University and Trump Steaks and Trump Magazine and so on and so forth. But we're well organized to move forward."

Trump's New York co-chair Joseph Borelli, however, said that Nehring's comments "might be true in his mind," but they "will not translate to actual victories on [April] 26, when we're leading in every state."
