(Raleigh News Observer) The presidential campaign of Mitt Romney has begun shifting staff out of North Carolina, saying Thursday it was feeling confident enough that the state would go Republican next month.
Although the campaign declined to specify how many individuals were involved in the shift, it did acknowledge that its chief spokesman, Robert Reid, had been moved to Ohio.
“With the increasingly widening polls in North Carolina, we will continue to allocate resources, including key senior staff, to other states,” said Michael Levoff, a Romney campaign spokesman in Boston.
“Our victory centers throughout the state will remain open and we expect our supporters and volunteers to remain engaged in our unprecedented get out the vote efforts through the election,” Levoff said.
Romney campaign advisers had telegraphed the move on Wednesday, saying it was considering moving staff from North Carolina into states long considered safe for President Barack Obama such as Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania, the Associated Press reported.
