Upper Peninsula Briefs

MLive tells an interesting story about current Governor of Mass. Mitt Romney.

MARQUETTE, Mich. (AP) The governor of Sen. John Kerry's home state wanted to campaign in the Upper Peninsula for President Bush, but had to settle for a phone call.

Mitt Romney, the Republican governor of Massachusetts, planned to visit Marquette last Friday but his flight was canceled because of heavy fog. Instead, Romney spoke by phone to about 50 people at the Marquette County GOP headquarters.

"We are counting on you," Romney said. "My state's not worth talking about. It's Kerry's state, and our votes won't count too much here."

Romney, son of former Michigan Gov. George Romney, said he had known Kerry for 30 years and believed he wasn't a "bad person." But Romney said he feared the country would fall into recession and be less safe with Kerry in the White House.
