New York Times: “The Michigan presidential primary on Tuesday offers Rick Santorum — and skeptical conservatives — the best chance yet to turn nagging questions about Mitt Romney into deep doubts about his candidacy.”

AP:  “On the eve of a Michigan showdown, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum swapped insults Monday in a struggle for the Republican presidential nomination growing so long and heated that party officials fretted openly it could harm prospects for winning the White House this fall.”

Washington Post: “Mitt Romney is dropping his recent focus on social issues and returning to his core message on the economy. After two weeks of talking about abortion, religious liberty and gay marriage to appeal to recalcitrant GOP conservatives ahead of Tuesday’s Michigan and Arizona primaries, Romney is signaling that he will leave those hot-button subjects to to the rival campaign of Rick Santorum in the upcoming states.”

WSJ: “Michigan’s Republican presidential primary Tuesday is more than a test of Mitt Romney’s ability to win his native state. It is a test of a central thesis of his campaign: He has the best chance of beating President Barack Obama.”

CNN: “The top two candidates have been spending most of their time since Thursday in Michigan, but the message from the candidates and their campaigns couldn’t be more different.”
