    In a phone interview with FOX News, Barack Obama’s deputy campaign manager, Steve Hildebrand said: “John McCain is right. Things are tightening in the battleground states.”

    FOX News obtained a copy of a memo Hildebrand sent to long-standing Democratic operatives on Tuesday.

    The memo, shown below, reveals the extensive get-out-the-vote efforts Obama’s team has underway and “urgent” needs that have yet to be met.

    Hildebrand told FOX News he sent the memo out to boost efforts in Florida but that similar memos were also sent out seeking help in North Carolina, Georgia and Ohio. He said needs were less acute in Pennsylvania.

    Hildebrand said the campaign disregards current state polls showing Obama ahead.

    “They were not always a good indicator in the primaries so we’re working hard now. We feel good but we always need more help in the field. On the ground in these states, things feel like they are tightening.”

    Hildebrand’s memo begins now:

    The Obama campaign people appear to be a lot sharper than those on this board that have been gloating over Obama's leads in the polls.

    It ain't over til it's over.

    I'm still praying that Obama's "Christian" supporters will not cast aside biblical principles by marking their ballot for the killer of children.
