Romney campaign moves staff out of Pennsylvania
Source: CBS News
The Romney campaign is moving five staffers from Pennsylvania to Ohio in order to help out with efforts in the Buckeye State.
"With early voting already underway in Ohio but 96% of voting taking place on election day in Pennsylvania, these 5 of 64 staff will be better utilized in Ohio right now," one Romney aide told CBS News.
The campaign is not entirely pulling out of Pennsylvania, however, contrary to reports suggesting otherwise. Neither is the Republican National Committee or their "Victory" operation. Between the campaign and the national party, there are 24 offices in Pennsylvania, and 40 in Ohio.
By contrast, President Obama's campaign has 45 offices in Pennsylvania, and 120 in Ohio.
Romney was recently in Pennsylvania for a fundraiser in Philadelphia and a campaign stop at Valley Forge Military Academy & College on September 28, but, prior to that, had not been to the state for over a month. He has been in Ohio much more frequently, and has three events there tomorrow - two events with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, and then a concert with country musician Collin Raye.
