Did Obama Trick McCain?
If John McCain’s strategy on the ground in Pennsylvania worked, why didn’t he win the state? The Political Wire reports that it’s possible the Obama campaign tricked McCain into wasting his limited resources in a state that was never actually in play.
Wait, before you go…
1. Obama’s campaign learns McCain has just $37 million entering October.
2. Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell says he’s “nervous” that McCain is gaining ground.
3. Obama’s team “leaks” an internal poll proving Rendell’s anxiety.
4. McCain pulls back in other states to “flood” Pennsylvania with resources.
