Romney to Make Michigan Visit Next Week

Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney will make a two-day campaign and fundraising swing through Michigan next week.

Mitt Romney’s Michigan stops will wrap up a bus tour of states deemed by the campaign to be competitive. The campaign may be drawing some hope from a new EPIC-MRA survey of Michigan voters that – for the first time -- put the race for the state’s 16 electoral votes at or near a tie.

No specific campaign stops have been identified. Romney will also attend fundraisers in Grand Rapids and Oakland County. It’s not known if Romney will visit his Michigan headquarters, which opened this week in Lansing.

President Obama’s reelection campaign will use this week to call attention to business success stories that can be linked back to the automotive rescue. Romney opposed the government loans that kept the auto companies from running out of cash.
