GOP presidential contender Mitt Romney coming to Lansing this week
Mitt Romney will make his first visit to Michigan this week since the state’s February presidential primary. The apparent Republican presidential nominee will deliver a speech in Lansing.
Mitt Romney won a narrow victory over Rick Santorum in the Michigan Republican primary.
Romney will speak at Lansing Community College tomorrow afternoon. His speech is expected to focus on the economy, and he will say President Obama’s policies have failed to sufficiently lift middle class families.
The visit is a hint that Republicans may consider Michigan a battleground state.
Michigan has not gone with a GOP presidential candidate since 1988, but Republicans hope Romney’s roots in the state will help make Michigan competitive this time around. Romney was born in Detroit and his father George Romney served as governor of Michigan in the 1960s.
