Romney narrowly wins Michigan GOP primary
Wed, 29 Feb 2012 03:22:04 GMT —
Mitt Romney has narrowly won the Michigan Republican presidential primary.
The former Massachusetts governor defeated Rick Santorum, who had waged a hard-fought battle for the state.
Michigan is critical for Romney because it is the first of the nation's industrial battleground states to vote in the GOP nominating race - and it is also his home state.
Earlier Tuesday night, Romney easily won the Arizona GOP primary.
