Mitt Romney Gets A Michigan Delegates Boost

Many news organizations projected that Michigan’s thirty delegates would be split up evenly. However, the official count shows that Mitt Romney will get sixteen delegates, and Rick Santorum will get fourteen. Now it might seem strange that two frontrunners would be spending so much time in a state with only thirty delegates, that are split up by congressional district. Well, there are many reasons to do so. First, candidates (or at least most of them) try to contest every state, they don’t concede states early on. Second, Mitt Romney was born in the state of Michigan, and his father was an auto executive and governor. Beating Mitt Romney in his own state would prove incredibly damaging to the Romney campaign, who say that they are the most electable. Third, in Michigan, it is possible to win more delegates but not win the popular vote.
