NOVI, Mich. -- Thursday evening at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi was supposed to be a commemorative Lincoln Day dinner for close to 1500 attendees and supporters of the Republican Party. What became the focus of the night, however, was an address exchange between two major players of the GOP race this 2012 election year.

Yes, comments from Gov. Rick Snyder, Oakland County’s L. Brooks Patterson, and Reverend C.L. Bryant (who was arguably the loudest of the night) stirred up optimism for a President representing the host party.

The first of the chief speakers, however, stirred local sentiment through a sense of nostalgia. Ann Romney, the wife of current Presidential candidate Mitt, played the background experience card with her reflection on their initial meeting and marriage with a dash of college era-based humor that she guided along as occurring while in Michigan together.

It was a tactic also employed by rival GOP candidate Rick Santorum, yet his agenda stretched over to the issue of Barack Obama’s accused drawbacks and the matter of relying on natural resources within sovereign borders that weren’t overseas property (using the Alaska pipeline and Chinese shares as examples).

Overall, Santorum et al repeatedly clarified that no matter the winning candidate on Super Tuesday, Michigan remained a battleground state that may guarantee who will win the Presidency merely through winning the Mitten (whether a Mitt makes such a possibility repetitive or not at least come March).
