And he’ll pour more into his efforts in Ohio, Florida and…Wisconsin?
McCain will go off TV in Michigan, stop dropping mail there and send most of his staff to more competitive states, including Wisconsin, Ohio and Florida. Wisconsin went for Kerry in 2004, Ohio and Florida for Bush. [...]
Republicans had been bullish on Michigan, hopeful that McCain’s past success in the state in the 2000 primary combined with voter dissatisfaction with Democratic Gov. Jennifer Granholm and skepticism among blue-collar voters about Barack Obama could make it competitive. [...]
But recent polls there have shown Obama extending what had been a small lead, with the economic crisis damaging an already sagging GOP brand in a state whose economy is in tatters.
McCain’s money is much better spent in Virginia than Wisconsin. There’s no way that state will go red this election cycle. Obama won by 17 points over Hillary there.
What a weird move…
