Michigan Stop

Saul Anuzis Red State Diaries briefly reviews Gov Romney's visit in Michigan Friday night.

Another source states that he also addressed the "salute to west Michigan Business awards luncheon'' in Grand Rapids earlier that day.

The Muskegon County Republican Lincoln Day Dinner, which was MC'd by state committee member Kyle Olson, was a great success. Governor Mitt Romney gave a great speech at the dinner, talking about the challenges American faces and then optimism and hope he sees ahead for our country as we face these challenges.

Governor Romney spent almost an hour before the dinner with grassroots GOP activists sharing his views, answering questions and then later taking pictures. Based on the comments I heard on the way out...folks were very impressed and thankful he was there.

Chuck and Holly organized a series of meetings before the event to introduced Governor Romney to local community leaders. Holly made a point that the Governor was "on their short list" of possible candidates they might support for President.

This was Muskegon county's largest Lincoln Dinner one woman said to me on the way out..."I came to see the next President of the United States"...well, maybe a bit early for that, but Mitt clearly helped bring out a record crowd.
