The Romney campaign is pulling the plug on Michigan and Pennsylvania.
The Romney campaign and conservative groups like Crossroads GPS have pulled TV ads in Michigan, Romney’s home state, according to the Detroit News.
Nor are the campaign and super PACs running advertising in Pennsylvania, after unleashing a barrage there over the past five months.
If they’re giving up on those two big swing states, that means they’re going to have to win big in other places, like Florida, Virginia, and Ohio. That’s roughly the equivalent of pulling an inside straight in poker.
