WASHINGTON -- Trailing in polling and fundraising, Martin O'Malley's presidential campaign is shifting staff from its Baltimore headquarters to early primary states such as Iowa.

The shift comes just days after O'Malley's performance at the second debate was widely praised. Yet his campaign has struggled to raise the money needed to mount a campaign -- reporting less than $1 million on hand at the end of the third quarter.

"After the governor's strong performance in the debate in Iowa on Saturday night, we're shifting more resources and staff to Iowa and the other early states," O'Malley spokeswoman Haley Morris said after the news was reported by MSNBC.

"We have always run a lean campaign and will continue to do so," she said. "We are pursuing matching funds and will compete vigorously for the nomination."
