Mccain Pulling Out Of Michigan

-- by Dave Johnson

If true, this is a very good sign. Jonathan Martin's Blog: McCain pulling out of Michigan - Politico.com,

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.

So the "Hail Mary" aptempts to set fire to his campaign backfired and set the campaign tent on fire. Dropping in the polls, running out of money, and looking ever more unstable, McCain is consolidating his efforts.

What this will mean, if it continues, will likely be attempts to prevent an absolute landslide and keep at least enough Republicans in the Senate to block everything.
