Santorum Continues to Dispute Michigan Primary

The Michigan primary was almost a week ago, but the Rick Santorum campaign continues to dispute the results. The fight with the state GOP is over the apportionment of two statewide delegates to the Republican National Convention.

The Santorum campaign has complained to the Republican National Committee and called for an investigation. The campaign is also organizing a rally to be held in front of the Michigan Republican headquarters in Lansing. Santorum supporters will call on Michigan GOP leaders to reconsider their decision to award both the party’s statewide delegates to Mitt Romney. They say party leaders changed the rules to avoid awarding one apiece to Romney and Santorum, who ran a close second in last week’s Michigan primary and won half of the state’s congressional districts. A state Republican spokesman says that decision is now in the hands of the national GOP and calls the rally a needless distraction from the focus on helping Republicans win in November.
