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.
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.
