Let him -- nicely county for which you -- chairman of the candy Republicans.
Okay I am from.
McComb county McComb county there we go I didn't get out one wrong because they didn't say I'm -- -- told.
Tell me this Walton what do you think it is most important to the voters the Republican vote is that right now.
And why -- they seem to be leaning away from Mitt Romney who was such a strong front runner just a couple weeks ago and towards Rick Santorum.
Okay well first of all Jonathan Allen say what a pleasure it is to talk with you I've admired your work for a long time that's very nice and I think -- It's the truth that really has.
-- McComb county is kind of a unique blend.
Blue collar and we have some very strong tea parties.
And one of them is called -- -- and -- it was called the Romeo Tea Party.
There is a strong presence of the Tea Party.
Some of their issues are.
Definitely the religious freedom.
With the issue that came up about contraception in the Catholic Church.
Expanding the federal government.
And the executive orders and we feel abuse of power in Iran.
Now when you look at the global picture in Michigan.
-- the economy.
What a surprise.
Right to work.
And the national debt.
And do you think the.
Mitt Romney is colleagues on the auto industry in the recovery all not their all of I do you think that has affected.
Affected his votes that Barbara.
With that I do I do particularly.
With the union workers.
And I don't think they're the ones that would've supported Mitt Romney anyway.
And Rick Santorum really has the same exact position.
We shouldn't let the auto companies go into receivership.
And I actually share that belief.
I think a lot of the bailout really helped the unions.
And which was a good thing for a lot of people here there's no question about that.
You know can it hurt him with the Republicans.
I have definitely heard Republicans not be happy with that statement as well -- -- -- it seems that if Rick Santorum does win and I just wanna put up the latest Michigan GOP voters.
Preference poll -- we have -- from the Detroit news.
Showed that Rick Santorum -- 34%.
Mitt Romney a -- three and a half percent behind it's within the margin of error but Santorum does seem to be the one moving if it's that Rick Santorum wins it really does seem to throw this race on its head.
And calls the Republican Party to in some extent.
Continue to -- Agony -- trying to choose a candidate doesn't worry you that this race is going on so long and the party doesn't seem to -- coalesce around one candidate.
Yes it does Jonathan but I will tell you that as many people as I talk to about it.
And of course I am around a lot of party people which includes -- I said the Tea Party.
They will tell you that that they will come together.
As long as we can beat Barack Obama.
There has been a lot of excitement.
For Rick Santorum.
There was a large.
Lincoln dinner with 14100 people in Oakland County which is a sister county kill us.
And there was also a very very.
Rallying for Rick Santorum.
In Shelby Township where Mitt -- is coming tomorrow we expected 300 people and we got a thousand.
So you'd think that they -- the enthusiasm will be that for whom it ever.
The party eventually chooses.
I absolutely do believe that we will come together and and believe me I'm praying that we will -- -- There -- so many people that you know that's still tell me just like we've heard in all of the primary so far I haven't made up my mind I haven't made up my mind.
And people seem to do that at the very last minute.
In terms of the ground game I have not seen anything for Gingrich and I have not seen anything around par.
