Obama and McCain Compete For Unlikely Swing State: Arizona

Barack Obama hasn't been directing many resources to Arizona all along, but the campaign still thinks they have a good chance of winning McCain's home state. The last candidate to lose his state was Al Gore; Tennessee didn't go blue for its native son.

This past weekend the Obama camp asked supporters to donate money to help expand efforts in "new battlegrounds" including Georgia, North Dakota, and Arizona. But with surely enough money to get started before new funds came in, Obama began airing ads in Arizona on Saturday. In addition, Howard Dean is spending his last day before the election campaigning in McCain's home turf.

As of now, polling shows McCain ahead in Arizona by anywhere from five points to as close as one point. During the last few days before the election both candidates have been campaigning hard in states their parties lost in 2004. Do you think there could be some surprises tomorrow?
