Romney Says He Can Win Michigan
On Monday night, Mitt Romney was ending the fourth day of his five-day tour through six battleground states. The presumptive Republican presidential nominee made a brief appearance at the back of his campaign plane to speak to reporters as he was readying to fly to Michigan for the last day of the tour.
At this time, Romney is in a close race for the White House with incumbent President Obama and an even tighter race in Michigan. He is reserved about his chances of winning the state, where the latest polls have him neck and neck with Obama.
He said he feels that Michigan is a state he can win in the election. He said that personally a win in his home state would mean a great deal to him. Even though the presidential nominee had just spent 12 hours campaigning, he still looked fresh and ready for Tuesday, the last day of the tour.
He told reporters that he was still trying to finish The Next 100 Years, which was written by George Friedman. Romney was seen reading the book a couple of weeks ago while on a campaign swing through Colorado.
The race for the White House is starting to get tighter and Romney knows how important the swing states are and his visit to Michigan on Tuesday will be important for him to start cultivating the votes needed to push the vote over the top in his favor. Obama has enjoyed popularity in Michigan and was instrumental in helping the auto industry recover from near catastrophe during the financial crisis.
