MUSKEGON, Mich. (AP) -- Rick Santorum plans to bring his presidential campaign to western Michigan with three stops.
Santorum's campaign says in a release that the ex-Pennsylvania U.S. senator will hold rallies Monday afternoon in Muskegon and Holland. Then, he's scheduled to address the Kent County Lincoln Day Dinner at 7:45 p.m. at the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel in Grand Rapids.
Santorum has been surging in the Republican presidential polls nationwide and in Michigan, which holds its primary Feb. 28.
A Feb. 11-13 poll of 500 likely Michigan GOP primary voters found 34 percent backing Santorum and 30 percent backing Michigan native and ex-Massachusetts Gov. Mott Romney.
The 4 percentage point difference is within the 4.4 point margin of sampling error. Glengariff Group Inc. did the polling for The Detroit News, WDIV-TV and WZZM-TV.
