Santorum to 'Plant Flag' in Romney's Native State

Wednesday, 15 February 2012 12:55 AM EST

Republican presidential contender Rick Santorum isn't predicting victory, but he says he's going to plant a flag in the state where Mitt Romney was born.

Santorum, the former Pennsylvania senator, began running television ads in Michigan this week. He will campaign there on Thursday.

Romney grew up in Michigan, and his father was governor of the Wolverine State, where a presidential primary will take place on Feb. 28.

Asked about his expectations for Michigan after a campaign stop Tuesday night in Boise, Idaho, Santorum said Michigan is a lot like Pennsylvania, where he's had political success.

Santorum said he will "hopefully finish a good strong second" to Romney. "We think we can plant our flag there and do well," he said.

After winning three contests last week, Santorum has begun to pull ahead of Romney in national polls.
