Obama Expanding the Map

Polls show that Barack Obama expands the electoral map and puts some usual red states in play. You can see which of these red states the Obama campaign are targeting by looking at the first states Obama is traveling to since clinching the nomination.

From the NY Times...

On Monday, Mr. Obama will travel to North Carolina — a state that has not voted for a Democratic presidential candidate in 32 years — to start a two-week tour of speeches, town hall forums and other appearances intended to highlight differences with Mr. McCain on the economy. From there, he heads to Missouri, which last voted for a Democrat in 1996. His first campaign swing after securing the Democratic presidential nomination last week was to Virginia, which last voted Democratic in 1964.
On top of that Obama will be in Iowa on Wednesday, showing that they consider Iowa to be a battleground state once again this election.
