Michigan Mischief


WBUR's Fred Thys has been following the Mitt Romney campaign in Michigan where the outcome of today's primary could put an end to Romney's White House bid.

A Zogby Poll shows Romney and political maverick John McCain locked in a tight race for first. But Romney could get an unexpected lift from lib blogger Markos Moulitsas, who is trying to engineer some electoral mischief by encouraging Democrats in the Wolverine State to cast their vote for the former Massachusetts governor.

Moulitsas explains in his blog, "The Daily Kos:"

"...we want Romney in, because the more Republican candidates we have fighting it out, trashing each other with negative ads and spending tons of money, the better it is for us. We want Mitt to stay in the race, and to do that, we need him to win in Michigan."
