Romney camp feeling good about the odds tonight

Vote tallies are starting to come in for Michigan’s Republican primary election.

Early results show Rick Santorum with a slimlead over his rival Mitt Romney.

But Romney’s supporters in southeast Michigan say they’re optimistic and feeling good about the Michigan-native’s odds.

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette is heading up Romney’s campaign efforts in the state. Schuette says he is disgusted that Santorum encouraged Democrats to vote in the GOP primary against Romney.“I think that’s stupid, and I think most people view that as cynicism or hypocrisy in its worst form. I don’t get too stressed by it. What it really does show is there’s something in the air of desperation from the other side,” said Schuette.


But Schuette says he thinks Romney will walk away with a win in Michigan tonight.
