Mitt Romney to Host Town Hall in Shelby Township Tuesday

Michigan native and GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney has announced a stop in Shelby Township. This will be the second time in a week that a presidential hopeful has visited the Macomb County city.

Shelby Township has become a hot spot for presidential GOP hopefuls.

Mitt Romney will host a town hall meeting Feb. 21 at Eagle Manufacturing at 11 a.m.

The announcement was made just a day after GOP candidate Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum addressed more than 1,500 people Friday at Palazzo Grande, hosted by the Michigan Faith and Freedom Coalition.

Tuesday will mark Romney's fourth appearance in Michigan ahead of the state's Feb. 28 primary elections.

According to a Detroit News survey released Thursday of 500 likely primary voters, Santorum was leading in the Wolverine State 30 percent to Romney's 26 percent.

Michigan's primary has become more important after Santorum won last week in Colorado, Minnesota and Missouri.

Romney, whose father, George, was governor of Michigan in the 1960s, won the state's primary in 2008 with 39% of the vote, according to USA Today.

Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder has endorsed Romney, who spoke in Farmington Hills Thursday to area business leaders about how the government misunderstands businesses.

Eagle Manufacturing is located at 52113 Shelby Parkway in Shelby Township. RSVP with the Republican Committee of Northern Macomb County for the limited seating event by email TeamMI@mittromney.com or by phone, 248-270-8354.

Mitt Romney is one of the most qualified candidates for POTUS that we've ever had. He's extremely intelligent, decisive, organized, fiscally responsible, has deep moral convictions, is a great family man, a man of faith, patriotic, a born leader,...he's the whole package. GO MITT!!

Hi Lovethe- Just to qualify - President Obama has an undergrad from Columbia (also an Ivy league) in political science and international relations. JD from Harvard Law where he was also President of the Harvard Law Review. Romney - undergrad from Brigham Young w/BA in English, and JD/MBA from Harvard. Both impressive educational qualifications to be sure. And both quite legitimate. I just want to make sure we don't get into weird questions about the President's academic credentials as Trump did last spring, and Santorum strangely did just last week. Anyway, let's stick with the issues as it seems like you are. Thanks for your post.

Ever wonder why someone clearing 40 million a year....wants a Job that pays something like $270k? What's he taking away from all this? What's in it for him?

I went to the Lincoln Day Dinner last week and the guest speaker was Rick Santorum. This guy is the darling of the Tea Party movement who professes straight out, that they are not Republicans. Santorum talked about bad government programs like Medicare and Social Security. Explain to my 85 year old mother or all the other senior citizens that vote republican why these programs are so bad and why they need to be dismantled! ....I trust Mitt Romney would be our better choice for President and CEO of the United States. The guy in office now has the same basic resume that Santorum has…a “thought and a prayer” and look where we are!….What Mitt offers to our country is his ability to execute and implement a sound plan while restoring global credibility back to the office of the President. In the event of a likely nuclear threat by some rouge, non-compliant country, I want Mitt Romney at the helm and not some young inexperienced neophyte. Let’s start judging candidates by their deeds and not by their undisciplined thoughts.
