This may be over before the debates.

Republicans signaled this week that they might have given up hope in two important swing states.

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.

It is still possible for groups to purchase TV advertising in either state at a later date.

The PollTracker Averages show President Obama ahead 48.9 percent to 45.4 percent in Michigan, and in Pennsylvania, where he leads 49.9 percent to 41.4 percent.

Since when were Mich. and Penn swing states?
They have always leaned for Obama.

Gore couldn't win Tenn in 2000 either. I guess they knew him.

Romney didn't stay in Michigan when he grew up. Gore spent many years in the House and then in the Senate, representing Tenn.

Why is this news? Your poor choice of words "concedes" is misleading. Why would a campaign dump money somewhere that typically votes along a party line when REAL swing states are in the balance? Both campaigns have stopped airing ads there for now but no one, including you, knows what they will do in the future. Sally the Drama Queen.

Well, Mich and Penn were never swing states.
