This is huge news.

John McCain is pulling out of Michigan, according to two Republicans, a stunning move a month away from Election Day that indicates the difficulty Republicans are having in finding blue states to put in play.

McCain will go off TV in Michigan, stop dropping mail there and send most of his staff to more competitive states, including Wisconsin, Ohio and Florida. Wisconsin went for Kerry in 2004, Ohio and Florida for Bush.

This has been confirmed by the AP: http://ap.google.com/article/ALeqM5isOF ... gD93IHKMG3

and CNN:

Can anyone tell me how McCain realistically gets to 270 electoral college votes if he can't win Michigan? (It's possible, but based on recent polling it's a difficult path.)

Go here and play with the numbers:

Then again, on second thought, as Bristol Palin has taught us, pulling out always works when don't have alot of options.
