TROY, Mich. — Hundreds of supporters have turned out to cheer Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and his wife at the Polish Cultural Center in Troy, a day after a GOP debate in nearby Rochester Hills.
Romney is a clear favorite with Michigan Republicans. He grew up in Detroit and his father George led American Motors before becoming governor in 1963.
Mitt Romney still has many family members in Michigan; a niece introduced him Thursday in front of a large "Michigan for Mitt" backdrop.
Romney's wife, Ann, met with supporters Thursday morning in Lansing before joining him for the Troy event.
Romney asked the Troy High School band to play the University of Michigan fight song, but the band didn't know "Hail to the Victors." He quickly moved on to introducing his family.
