Middle Cheese: Obama Scaling Back in North Carolina, but Not Florida Yet


Middle Cheese checks in with a short update, pouring some cold water on the talk that the Obama campaign is triaging states already: “Team Romney says they have seen evidence that the Obama campaign is scaling back in North Carolina. None yet in Florida.”

Considering that the final debate is in Florida and that Romney’s lead in the state is consistent but small, and the impact news of a scaledown/concession would have on Democrats’ morale nationwide, it would make sense for the Obama campaign to stay active in Florida for as long as possible.
