Tampa — Mitt Romney’s deputy campaign manager pledged to Michigan’s GOP faithful Thursday that Mitt Romney would campaign in his home state through the election.

“This campaign will never pull out of Michigan,” said Katie Packer Gage, a Michigan native and the Romney campaign’s second in command.

Addressing the Michigan delegation the morning of the day Romney is to accept the GOP nomination, Packer Gage was referencing the John McCain campaign’s decision to pull out resources before the 2008 general election.

Romney doesn’t have to win Michigan to win the White House, Packer Gage said, but he’d sure like to win the state where he was born and raised and where his father once governed. “There’s nothing he’d love more.”

Born in Harper Hospital in Detroit and son of former Michigan Gov. George Romney, Romney aims to become the first Michigan native to be president and has said a here in the Mitten state ensures that would happen. Michigan hasn’t voted for a Republican presidential candidate since George H.W. Bush in 1988.
