McCain Pulls Out

Of Michigan, that is. To focus his resources on Wisconsin, Ohio, and...wait for it...Florida—a state that appeared safe for him for much of the year. 
McCain pulling out of Michigan
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.
My cautious optimist is fighting an increasingly losing battle against my flat-out triumphalist. I need to remember it's not over yet...and Obama my still lose. LOL.
