Mitt Romney supporters are anxiously awaiting the results of today’s primary elections in Arizona and Michigan. We’re optimistic about a win in The Grand Canyon State. Polling in The Great Lakes State between Governor Romney and Rick Santorum is razor thin. From The Washington Post:
Of the two, Michigan is by far the more competitive race – the candidates have been spending the bulk of their time there in recent days, and both Romney and Santorum hold their primary-night parties there tonight.
Newt Gingrich , who all but bypassed Michigan, is spending the day in his home state of Georgia, where he holds three campaign events, two news conferences and a primary night rally.
And Rep. Ron Paul , who campaigned only lightly in Michigan, is spending his primary night in Springfield, Va.
We hope Michiganders vote for the non-Democrat backed Mitt Romney.
Poll closing times:
Michigan – 8:00 pm ET
Arizona – 9:00 pm ET
