Mitt Romney’s campaign has pulled television ads in South Carolina and Florida, shifting resources to Michigan, the state that elected his father governor three times.
It appears Romney’s hanging what’s left of his presidential hopes on the state he once called home. And John McCain knows it. He flew from NH to Michigan yesterday, and though he campaigns today in South Carolina, McCain has dispatched Sam Brownback to Michigan to stump on his behalf for the next three days.
Romney, meanwhile, has a new radio ad on the air, featuring Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R-MI) and his wife, Diane Hoekstra. In the 60-second spot, called “Michigan Values”, the congressman’s wife says: “Governor Mitt Romney represents the values that are important to us. He will fight for the unborn and traditional marriage.”
