In a phone interview with FOX News, Barack Obamaâ€™s deputy campaign manager, Steve Hildebrand said: â€œJohn McCain is right. Things are tightening in the battleground states.â€
Hildebrand told FOX News he sent the memo out to boost efforts in Florida but that similar memos were also sent out seeking help in North Carolina, Georgia and Ohio. He said needs were less acute in Pennsylvania.
Hildebrand said the campaign disregards current state polls showing Obama ahead.
Interesting. The memo is for Florida but went out to a lot for a lot of states because the Obama GOTV needs some immediate help. H/T Jim Geraghty and Obi-wan Kenobi
