John McCain is pulling out of Michigan, according to two Republicans, a stunning move a month away from Election Day that indicates the difficulty Republicans are having in finding blue states to put in play.
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.
McCain’s campaign didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment….
A McCain event planned for next week in Plymouth, Michiigan, has been canceled.
I’ve never seen a campaign implode so profoundly in my life. Even Florida, Ohio, Virginia, North Carolina, and MISSOURI! are in play.
Doesn’t matter. In the liberal bastion of Ann Arbor, we’re gonna keep campaigning like we’re 10 points down.
I’m just sayin’…
