Obama Spokesman: ‘The Dye Is Cast;’ We’ve Won

leave a comment »

Sen. Barack Obama’s campaign manager David Plouffe told reporters via a conference call today that Democrats are encouraged by results of massive get-out-the-vote efforts in early-voting states. The campaign’s inference is that victory is at hand.

Plouffe said the campaign is pleased that a large part of the early vote so far is coming from sporadic and new voters, most of whom they believe are voting for Obama.

“We’re out of the land of theory here in a lot of these states. You’re beginning to see how this election is likely to unfold,” he said. “The dye is being cast even as we speak.”

“We’re always looking for opportunities to expand the map, and these three states are close enough,” Plouffe said. “It’s enough in the realm of possibility that we want to put a little extra effort here at the end.”

The three states he was referring to are Arizona, North Dakota, and Georgia.
