RALEIGH, NC (AP) -- President Barack Obama's campaign says Mitt Romney's team is making a mistake shifting money and workers out of North Carolina, where the two candidates have been competing hard for months.

The Romney campaign announced Thursday it's moving resources and key senior staff to other states, including chief North Carolina spokesman Robert Reid. A Romney campaign official says it's becoming more confident of a North Carolina win next month.

North Carolina Obama campaign spokesman Cameron French says it remains fully committed to North Carolina and Romney is signaling he's taking North Carolina votes for granted. Obama won the state in 2008 by about 14,000 votes - the first time a Democrat won since Jimmy Carter in 1976.

In-person early voting began Thursday in North Carolina, with both sides holding several events.
