Barack Obama senior adviser David Axelrod promised to shave off his mustache of 40 years is Mitt Romney wins Minnesota, Michigan, or Pennsylvania. He made the promise on MSNBC--and pledged to come back on Morning Joe for the shaving.
A new poll today finds Romney losing to Obama in Michigan, a typical Democratic stronghold, by less than 3 percentage points. Republicans also believe Romney has a chance to pull out a win in Pennsylvania and Minnesota, and are now beginning to pour money into the state 6 days before Election Day.
For his part, host Joe Scarborough promised to grow a mustache if Obama is able to win Florida or North Carolina, two swing states that now lean in Romney's favor.
