FRANKENMUTH, MI - Mitt Romney has been campaigning back home in Michigan -- where, he says, the "trees are the right height."
The likely Republican presidential nominee told a crowd gathered today outside the sprawling Bavarian Inn Lodge in the resort town of Frankenmuth that he's going to win Michigan, with their help.
Romney added that if he's "lucky enough" to be elected president, he'd be the first president in American history to have been born in Michigan.
Romney is the former governor of Massachusetts, but was born in Michigan and raised in the suburbs of Detroit. His father, George Romney, ran a car company -- American Motors-- and went on to run the state as governor.
In 1968, George Romney failed to win the Republican presidential nomination, a prize his son is set to be officially awarded at the Republican National Convention in August.
