McCain pulls out of Michigan

John McCain is ending his attempt to win Michigan, a serious blow to the Republican's presidential hopes.

Chuck Yob, a co-chair of Michigan's campaign, confirmed the decision, as did state GOP Chairman Saul Anuzis.

"I don't think it's a very good decision. I think they're wrong," said Yob, a longtime Republican activist in West Michigan. "But I'm a loyal John McCain supporter. Whatever's good for McCain is good for me."

Yob said the decision was based on internal campaign polls that show Michigan as a more difficult state than battlegrounds such as Ohio, Florida and Pennsylvania.
