Romney Still Battling for Michigan

Restore Our Future has a big ad buy in Michigan which is a great sign for Team Romney. The official campaigns cannot coordinate with the SuperPACs but don’t deceive yourself, these types of moves occur because the official campaign thinks it is money well spent. Restore Our Future is the SuperPAC run by all former senior Romney staffers.

Importantly, at  8:15am today there is a Victory Event at The Pinnacle Center in Hudsonville, Michigan hosted by Ann Romney. She will then drop by the Franklin Cider Mill in Bloomfield Hills at 2:40

The below excerpt if from Politico’s “Morning Score:”

RESTORE OUR FUTURE BUYING $1.5 MILLION IN MICHIGAN: The Romney super PAC will go on the air Saturday with “New Normal,” the economic-focused attack on President Obama’s record that they’ve run in a couple other states over the last few weeks. ‘Michigan is now a ‘toss up’ state for the Presidential race and it is no surprise that Mitt Romney is coming on strong in his native state,” writes Restore Our Future co-founder and counsel Charlie Spies. “Michiganders, who have felt the full weight of Barack Obama’s broken promises and failed policies, are increasingly energized by Mitt Romney’s clear vision for a stronger economy and better tomorrow.’

    You do get the sense that Romney’s map is expanding while Obama’s is shrinking, don’t you….

    Obama’s packed up in NC and appears to be slowly retreating from Florida. And apparently drawing in reinforcements from other states to bolster Ohio (although Romney is doing that as well)

    Interesting. I personally feel that PA is more winnable than MI due to the sheer fact that there are so many blue dog and conservative D’s in PA but their internal polling must be telling them something. Go team R/R.

    Probably RoF’s best ad by far. Played heavily in VA, and the result is swinging the state.
