WASHINGTON, February 28, 2012 – Arizona and Michigan primary coverage will begin at 7:30pm tonight as we watch whether Rick Santorum or Mitt Romney will claim any, or all, the 29 delegates up for grabs.
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R) is endorsing the former Massachusetts governor in the race for the Republican presidential nomination over the weekend leading to Mitt Romney is favored in the Grand Canyon State contest.
The Michigan primary also takes place on Tuesday and Rick Santorum is hoping to score an upset win in the state where Romney was born. Romney is accusing Santorum of courting Democratic votes through automated telephone calls and appealing to Michigan conservatives by making the kind of “incendiary” statements he would not.
“I’m not willing to light my hair on fire to try and get support,” Romney said. “I am what I am.” (ap)
Santorum brushed aside the allegations saying:
“We’re going to get voters that we need to be able to win this election. And we’re going to do that here in Michigan today,” Santorum said, referring to blue collar voters with a history of swinging between the parties. (ap)
Ron Paul and Newt Gingrich are both taking this primary in stride, instead looking ahead to Super Tuesday and the 10-state primaries and caucuses that are schedule for March 6.
Starting at 7:30pm, join Communities political pundits Terry Ponick, Rich Stowell and Henry D’Andre as they host a live debate, encouraging your thoughts and comments and interpreting the results from both states.
