    Roll Call ^ | June 7, 2012 | Shira Toeplitz
    That was fast. Top Michigan Republicans decided to support former state Sen. Nancy Cassis (R) as their consensus write-in candidate for the 11th district GOP ballot. A cadre of top local GOP leaders met again this morning to discuss potential candidates and settled on Cassis out of a handful of write-in hopefuls who expressed interest. The decision follows a hectic couple of days for the local GOP since Rep. Thaddeus McCotter (R-Mich.) dropped his own write-in bid Saturday after failing to make the Aug. 7 primary ballot. There’s one Republican on the primary ballot, reindeer rancher Kerry Bentivolio, but GOP...

    Business Insider ^ | 10/31/2012 | Brett LoGiurato
    President Barack Obama has seen a once-steady lead in Michigan decline to just 2 points in a recent poll, and Michigan has been thrown into "toss-up" status in the election's final week. The poll, from The Detroit News, finds Obama leading Republican rival Mitt Romney, 47.7 percent to 45 percent. That's the second poll in a week that has shown an increasingly tight race in the state, including a Foster McCollum White Baydoun poll that showed the race virtually tied. And it comes as a pro-Romney super PAC, American Crossroads, includes Michigan in its $50 million, final-week ad buy. Intriguingly,...

    Few Americans will forget that electric moment when Barack Obama took the stage in Chicago’s Grant Park on the night he was elected president. We were a war-weary country jolted by an economic plunge and looked to the man promising hope and change and assuring us that, yes, we could. We were inspired. Four years later, do you feel the same way? It was unrealistic to believe President Obama could meet the lofty expectations created by candidate Obama. No one will dispute that he inherited remarkable challenges. But four years later, we need to be further along. And we don’t...

    Hotair ^ | 10/25/2012 | Erika Johnsen
    President Obama has lately been trying to make hay over Mitt Romney's now-infamous "Let Detroit Go Bankrupt" 2008 article, mischaracterizing it as the callous approach of a cold-hearted let-them-eat-cake capitalist that contrasts sharply with his own oh-so-munificent taxpayer-funded bailout plan. To hear the president tell it, Romney's plan would've been a disastrous failure while his own has been a resounding success and proof of the soundness of his economic policies --- but I have a feeling his recent revisits to the issue may have something to do with the possibility that Michigan may turn out to be a little bit...

    Detroit paper thanks Obama for auto bailout, endorses Romney By Keith Laing - 10/25/12 10:38 AM ET The Detroit News is thanking President Obama for his administration's $80 billion bailout of the U.S. auto industry, but the self-proclaimed conservative newspaper is endorsing Republican Mitt Romney for president. In an editorial published Thursday, the paper said it was not a "no-brainer" to endorse Romney over Obama after the loans that were given to General Motors and Chrysler in 2008 and 2009. But the newspaper said the former Massachusetts governor would be a better fit for the White House in 2012. "Don't...

    Obama’s 10 percentage point lead (47%-37%) in a poll conducted last month by EPIC-MRA of Lansing dropped to 3 points (48% to 45%), according to the poll of 600 likely voters conducted by EPIC-MRA of Lansing. The gap between Romney and Obama was within the poll’s margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points… “Romney has come back like gangbusters,” said EPIC-MRA President Bernie Porn. “Whether or not it’s long-lasting, only time will tell, but probably the remaining debates will be key.” Conducted in the three days following the Wednesday debate, the poll showed more than five times...

    ROCHESTER, Mich. - Paul Ryan abruptly ended an interview with an ABC affiliate in Flint after the reporter tried to grill the vice presidential candidate on gun violence and tax cuts. "Does the country have a gun problem?" WJRT's Terry Camp asked in a one-on-one interview. "This country has a crime problem," Ryan responded. After the anchor pressed him on whether he thinks the country has a "gun problem," the self-described deer hunter elaborated, "If you take a look at the gun laws we have, I don't even think President Obama is proposing more gun laws. We have good, strong...

Ryan was answering a series of questions about violence, guns and gun control laws. Ryan, addressing gun violence, said the best thing to do is to "help teach people good discipline [and good character. Local anchor Terry Camp asked Ryan if he could do all of that "by cutting taxes" which caused him to get up and end the interview.

    Once again, the campaign for US President is a horse race in the battleground state of Michigan! The momentum has now shifted to former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney because of his winning performance in the first of three scheduled debates against President Barack Obama. In September, the momentum was behind the President after he received a big boost from the Democratic National Convention. In a new and exclusive poll for WXYZ, the Detroit Free Press, and our statewide media partners, 48 percent say they would vote for Democrat Obama if the election were held today. Forty-five percent of the 600...

    Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan is a professed heavy metal fan, but he’ll be getting a little help on the campaign trail from a musician known more these days for his guitar-heavy rock tunes than his headbanging prowess. Michigan native Kid Rock will appear and introduce the Wisconsin congressman at a Monday rally in the rocker’s home state, according to the local news site
