Romney’s Plans for TN Depend on Michigan Results: Official

It’s still to be seen whether Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney will campaign in Tennessee ahead of next week’s Super Tuesday primary. Officials say Romney’s plans depend largely on the outcome of contests in other states being held Tuesday.

Right now Romney is duking it out in his home state of Michigan against Rick Santorum. How Romney fares there will set the tone for his plans ahead of Super Tuesday, says John Crisp, the volunteer chair of Romney’s campaign for Middle Tennessee.

“I think we’ll know very quickly what his plans are for the coming week, but we’re hopeful. We’re hopeful that he’ll be in the state between now and March 6th.”

A recent Vanderbilt poll showed Santorum with a double-digit lead over Romney in Tennessee.

Meanwhile Santorum has lined up his second visit to the state in a week. The former Pennsylvania Senator is set to appear at a fundraiser at a Nashville home Wednesday night.
