McCain's camp moves to Maine

"I come from Detroit where it's rough and I'm not a smooth talker." Said once by Eminem. Said now by John McCain's campaign...

Pulling out of Michigan.
McCain-Palin Political Director Mike Duhaime told reporters this afternoon that "the [Michigan] operations will be scaled back" but they still will have a presence. Resources will be specifically shifted to Maine, where McCain is "opening up an aggressive front" and where the state's four Electoral College votes are split.
Smooth move?

It's VA that worries me.
Obama has succeeded in making the traditional Republican strongholds of Indiana, North Carolina and Virginia competitive. McCain staffers say that Obama may be ahead in some competitive states, tied, or just slightly behind McCain in others, because McCain has been "letting" Obama spend his cash there while McCain waits to make his move. But once he does, particularly the competitive states with strong GOP constituencies, will "snap back aggressively in our favor," said Strimple.
Let's go, people!
