WASHINGTON (– Mitt Romney is delivering his anti-Donald Trump message directly to voters in Michigan, recording robo calls on behalf of Marco Rubio and John Kasich.
Kasich’s campaign confirms that recorded calls from Romney encouraging Michigan voters to choose the Ohio governor in Tuesday’s primary are going out to homes in Michigan today. An audio recording of the phone calls says they are paid for by Kasich’s campaign. Similar calls are going out across the state on behalf of Marco Rubio.
In the call, Romney urges Michigan voters to choose someone who can defeat Hillary Clinton in the fall.
Kasich’s campaign is hoping a strong showing in Michigan will boost momentum heading into the Ohio primary on March 15.
A spokesperson for Romney says the former GOP nominee has offered his help to Rubio, Kasich and Ted Cruz in his efforts to stop Trump from clinching the nomination.
