COLUMBUS, Ohio, Oct. 9 (UPI) -- Mitt Romney's campaign is shifting resources from Pennsylvania to a potentially make-or-break effort in neighboring Ohio, an adviser said.

Five staff members in Pennsylvania were moved to Ohio to help guide the staff at 40 field offices Romney has up and running in the Buckeye State, CBS News reported. Romney has campaigned infrequently in Pennsylvania, but a recent poll showed him leading in Ohio -- a state crucial to Romney's chances of winning the electoral college.

Pew Research Center released a survey of Ohio voters Tuesday showing Romney with a slight edge over President Barack Obama, 49 percent to 47 percent, Voice of America reported Tuesday.

Ohioans eager to cast a vote can do so now. Early voting began Oct. 2, with both campaigns planning massive get-out-the-vote events. Obama will appear at a concert with hip hop star will.i.am on the Ohio State University campus, CBS said.
