The presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney returns to Michigan Tuesday. He’ll deliver a policy address at Lansing Community College.
This is Romney’s first return visit to Michigan since his narrow Republican primary victory in February. Romney’s expected to focus on the economy in his speech, and suggest President Obama’s policies have slowed the pace of the nation’s, and Michigan’s, economic recovery.
The appearance certainly suggests the Romney campaign considers Michigan an attainable prize. Michigan has not gone for the Republican presidential nominee since 1988. But Michigan does elect Republicans to statewide offices, and Romney was born in the state where his father George Romney once served as governor.
