You heard it here first. Mitt Romney is goin’ down. He’s gonna lose in his home state of Michigan, and after that it’s just a matter of how long he circles the drain.
If there is a local Republican hero in Michigan, it is ex-governor Bill Milliken, from Traverse City. Milliken is now endorsing John McCain in the Michigan primary tomorrow, and gives Mitt Romney a few hard spanks.
Michigan’s most famous Republican moderate, former Gov. William G. Milliken, has endorsed Arizona Sen. John McCain in Tuesday’s presidential primary, a move that many no doubt will view as a slap to Mitt Romney.
Milliken served as lieutenant governor to Romney’s father, George, from 1965 to 1969 and succeeded him as governor. …
Milliken, who was Michigan’s longest-serving governor, from 1969-1982, had pointed words for Romney, who was Massachusetts’ governor from 2003-2007.
“I was a great admirer of his father,” Milliken said. “But Mitt Romney has been a disappointment to me because he has changed his socially responsible positions he took as governor of Massachusetts. I don’t have the respect for him that I had for his father.”
