to the Obama campaign.
Mitt Romney's election team cannot coordinate with the PAC groups that have been circulating around the state of Michigan in the last month, but it CAN be aware of where they are, what responses have been, and shifting poll data. The shifting polls as I mentioned in a prior opinion show an RCP of +4 Obama, with a tie otherwise from a 2.9% MOE poll. A Romney super PAC has ad buys in major markets in Michigan for the last week, and now it seems team Obama is in a panic:
".. the Obama campaign is going on Detroit broadcast TV with ads for 11/1 -- 11/6."OK, just a match play right?
Now there have been visits throughout the state by Ann Romney, and they have been standing room only affairs on short notice. $2 million is not chump change, even to these guys. They know its not 2008, and Obama has a record to run from, as well as a funny thing going on about Benghazi. (Like WHY didn't he want to offer help to our ambassador and those with him?)
The article above notes Obama ads will be about the auto bailout and Romney's comments about a bankruptcy. Going to that well once more may not have the desired effect however, as Romney has made his case quite well about his opinion piece in the debate process.
Desperation now driving the Obama campaign to do exactly what Democrats do when in office. Throw money at the problem hoping it does something. .. Anything
