Paul Begala, an adviser to the pro-Obama super PAC, says that the Obama campaign has given up on North Carolina:

"Yes," Begala says when asked by Wolf Blitzer whether Obama's "given up on North Carolina."

Begala continues: "I'm not supposed to say that, Wolf, but I work for, as you mentioned, the pro-Obama super PAC, so I'm being paid to help reelect the president, but if you look at where he's going and where he's spending money--yes, it looks like Governor Romney is likely to carry North Carolina."
