Is California In Play?

Is California in play? You might think so given this report from Yreka, California in The Siskiyou Daily News.

Last week, Louise Gliatto, a volunteer at the Republican campaign office, handed out the last McCain-Palin yard sign. The last campaign button went a few days earlier. There is a good supply of McCain-Palin bumper stickers, however, and local Republicans have been visiting the campaign office to get them. At both offices, voters have been interested in information on the state ballot initiatives.

“A lot of Mount Shasta people have been coming in,” Democratic office volunteer Mike Cassady said of the Yreka office.

The Democrats are staffing a single office in Yreka, while the Republicans have opened offices in Yreka and Mount Shasta.

Before Monday’s deadline to register to vote, both offices were busy helping residents fill out registration cards. The Democrats also spent four days registering voters in front of Raley’s in Yreka. Cassady said several dozen voters from both parties were registered.
That is all very odd for a state that is not supposed to be in play. And the Republicans opening two offices to the Democrat's one? And how about those polls? Whatever they mean. Here is my motto from now until 0600z 5 Nov. 2008.

Don't give it to him. Make him steal it.

That's northern California, which is a whole different state than the Bay Area and SoCal.

I think this is a very close race, but California is not in play.
