Mitt Romney’s Michigan Win

Mitt Romney tonight avoided the land mine of a loss in Michigan, something that would have sent his campaign scrambling and the media searching for ever different kinds of superlatives to define the herky jerky Republican contest. “We didn’t win by a lot, but we won by enough,” he said about his 3-point margin in his home state (one of them) over Rick Santorum. So Romney is back in the front runner’s position, at least until next week, Super Tuesday. Meanwhile, Santorum spent a great deal of his speech this evening talking about his mother, wife and daughter, undoubtedly an effort to recast his appeal to women.

Romney’s victory speech is below.
