Here Comes the Cavalry

Group troops become increasingly important entering the final month of the campaign. The Romney and Obama teams are quite robust in their own right but it is great to see the campaign tapping outside resources to bolster the already meaty operations in the Battleground States:

More than 200 Republicans from across Alabama will descend on Ohio, North Carolina, Florida and Virginia later this month in hopes of tilting the presidential election toward Mitt Romney. U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Huntsville, and Alabama Republican Party Executive Director T.J. Maloney announced the “Alabama’s Battleground Patriots” program this morning at Limestone County GOP headquarters.

With Alabama expected to vote overwhelmingly for Romney and running mate Paul Ryan on Nov. 6, state GOP officials are paying to send several busloads of Alabama Republicans to the “battleground” states that will decide the election. Brooks will lead a delegation of more than 70 Huntsville-area Republicans to Dayton, Ohio, from Oct. 24-28.

Republicans from the Birmingham area will spend six days campaigning for Romney in Charlotte, N.C., and Virginia Beach, Va., while a group from Mobile will travel to Jacksonville, Fla. Republicans in Georgia and South Carolina are also mobilizing to help Romney carry those swing states, but Maloney said he believes Alabama’s program is the largest of its type.

While in Dayton, Alabama GOP volunteers will also campaign on behalf of Ohio Congressman Mike Turner and Republican U.S. Senate hopeful Josh Mandel, who is trying to unseat Democatic Sen. Sherrod Brown.

    Impressive. I know here in South Carolina, we’re making calls out to swing states to help the Romney/Ryan.

    Is Rasmussen overcounting Democrats in his poll based on 2008? Something just seems off on his polls.
