Messina: Obama Not Ditching Any States

Obama campaign manager Jim Messina attempted to squash rumors that the president's reelection team is preparing to shift resources from places like North Carolina to more vulnerable states. "We are tied or ahead in every battleground state, and we're not leaving any state where we're tied or ahead," Messina told reporters Tuesday. Mitt Romney, he pointed out, has taken "resources out of states like Pennsylvania and Michigan."
