OKLAHOMA CITY -

Republicans in Oklahoma are so confident Mitt Romney will win the Sooner State and capture its seven electoral votes that they are exporting volunteers to the nearest swing state -- Colorado.

More than 50 volunteers left Oklahoma on Sunday to knock on doors and help the Romney campaign in the Denver area. Colorado is one of about nine swing states where polls show Romney and President Barack Obama within a few points of each other.

Mark Keeling, a truck driver from Chickasha, says he joined the Oklahoma GOP's "Boots on the Ground Deployment" because of his dislike for Obama and because "Oklahoma is already sewed up."

In states like Illinois where Obama is favored to win, Democrats have sent volunteers to nearby swing states like Iowa and Wisconsin.
