"move" means to make adjustments to the plan to appeal to moderate voters. If you were to imagine a scale like this:

[left]----------[moderate]--------x--[right]

('x' representing how 'left' or 'right' the plan is)

But after the adjustments:

[left]----------[moderate]-x---------[right]

So the plan ('x') "moved" closer to the middle.



Apparently English likes to use imagery in this way.
