The Romney campaign is beginning to feel confident enough about North Carolina that is beginning to shift staff out of the state.
Among those who are being posted elsewhere in the final weeks of the campaign is Robert Reid, the chief Romney spokesman in North Carolina, who is heading 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.
“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.'
The latest Rasmussen Reports poll shows Romney up over Obama by a 52 to 46 percent margin.
