President Barack Obama's deputy campaign manager and press secretary have moved from Chicago to Tampa, where they are manning mobile campaign office outside the Republican National Convention, according to the New York Times.

Stephanie Cutter and Ben LaBolt, who served as Rahm Emanuel's spokesperson during his successful mayor run, are manning the pop-up office about a block outside the RNC's security perimeter.

The storefront functions as a work station with folding tables as well as a press room for news conferences with reporters. On Thursday, Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin used the space to criticize Paul Ryan's Wednesday night acceptance speech.
