NEW YORK (WKZO) -- Michigan is very much in the national spotlight and Michigan’s Governors, both past and present, were featured on “ABC’s This Week”. Rick Snyder said the auto bailout worked and he’s not going to armchair quarterback whether some alternative scenario might have worked too. He says Romney is going to win in Michigan because he talks about jobs.
In a round table, Former Governor John Engler says Michigan’s unions may try to sabotage the primary. Engler says Barack Obama is vulnerable on economic issues like energy, but Jennifer Granholm doesn’t think its fair to blame him for that. Granholm said that Romney has shifted his positions so far to the right to win the primaries that he has turned off independent and Hispanic voters.
