Republicans Say Bush Can Take Michigan

By  | 

President Bush lost Michigan in 2000 and is trailing Democrat John Kerry in recent polls. But Michigan delegates to the Republican National Convention say Bush can turn it around by focusing on tax cuts and national security and making frequent visits.

Glenn Clark is a local GOP leader from Troy. He says it's critical for Bush to win over women voters in Oakland County.

Clark thinks Bush can do that by focusing on his efforts to combat terrorism.

Bush made his eighth visit to Michigan this year on Monday, and he is expected to make many more before the election.

Kerry is likely to remain competitive on that front. He has made seven visits to Michigan this year.
