In new 30-second spot set to begin airing Wednesday in Michigan, Romney plays up his Detroit past and his vision for the Wolverine State’s future.
Romney: “People here in Detroit are distressed. I want to make Michigan stronger and better. Michigan has been my home and this is personal.”
Read the script below.
SCRIPT: “Now when I grew up in Michigan, it was exciting to be here. Remember going to the Detroit auto show with my dad. That was a big deal. How in the world did an industry and its leaders and its unions get in such a fix that they lost jobs, that they lost their future? President Obama did all these things that liberals have wanted to do for years. And the fact that you’ve got millions of Americans out of work, home values collapsing, people here in Detroit are distressed. I want to make Michigan stronger and better. Michigan has been my home and this is personal.”
