The Obama campaign is desperately trying to stay afloat in states that are Democratic strongholds. Michael Falcone of ABC News tweeted today that Obama is pouring money into ads in Pennsylvania:
@michaelpfalcone Initial size of Obama camp's PA ad buy: $650,000 in the Philly and PGH media markets from 10/31-11/6
Add this amount to the $500,000 that the Obama campaign just spent on ads in Minnesota, and you have over $1.1 million spent in two states that would normally be easily won by Democrats. This is not the mark of a campaign that is confident of success.
This is not Obama’s firewall collapsing; this is the building inside. The house of cards Obama has built may be about to be blown away.
