Presidential Race In NC Coming Down To Wire

The Obama and Romney Campaigns continue to fight for North Carolina's 15 Electoral College votes.

Depending on which poll you want to believe, Mitt Romney is either a few points ahead of President Barack Obama or it's dead-even in North Carolina. Romney Campaign advisor Rich Beeson clearly believes the former.

Rich Beeson: "North Carolina continues to move further and further away from them, as evidenced by the fact that they have not had the President down there since they left the convention.
The Obama Campaign calls that assertion "ludicrous." They have bought more TV ad time here in the run-up to the election."

Obama TV AD: "Mitt Romney thought no one was looking when he attacked 47 percent of Americans."

Both candidates have released their appearance schedules for the last few days of the campaign and neither is slated to come to North Carolina before Tuesday.
