The GOP now has its eyes on Michigan, Minnesota, and Pennsylvania spending time and money in hopes of turning the blue states red. President Barack Obama maintains narrow leads in all three but the gap has recently closed giving renewed hope to Mitt Romney’s campaign.

“I think we’re in a great position to win,” Romney senior adviser Russ Schriefer said during a conference call, according to The Washington Post. “Can we win all of them? Probably not. Can we win some of them? I think probably so.”

The Obama campaign has responded with ad buys of their own in the states but argue that Romney’s forays are a sign of weakness by a campaign looking for new avenues to 270 electoral votes.

“The lead here is four or five [percentage points], and I don’t think one week of TV is going to alter that,” former Democratic Pennsylvania governor Edward Rendell told the Post.

Minnesota hasn’t voted Republican since 1972 and an outside Romney adviser told the Post, “Romney has absolutely no ground game [in Minnesota]. I can’t imagine it’s real.”

In Michigan, Romney’s opposition to the auto bailout has proved problematic and Democrats in the state maintain it is not in play.
