Romney criticizes rival Santorum, says he's ill-prepared to deal with nation's economic woes
ROCKFORD, Mich. (AP) ' Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is criticizing Rick Santorum, saying his GOP rival is ill-prepared to deal with the nation's economic woes.
Campaigning Monday in western Michigan a day ahead of the primary, Romney stepped away from the cultural issues and conservative rhetoric he used over the weekend and instead insisted the former Pennsylvania senator doesn't know who to create jobs.
Romney is fighting hard to win Tuesday's primary in the state where he was born and raised. He's far ahead in Arizona, which also holds its primary Tuesday.
Speaking at a warehouse, Romney cited a Santorum opinion piece in The Wall Street Journal. Romney said he's glad Santorum recognizes the presidential campaign will center on the economy.
Romney plans three stops in Michigan on Monday.
