WASHINGTON -- Mitt Romney likes to tell people in Michigan he's one of them -- and whether voters see him that way could be crucial in determining his political fate.
Romney, 64, who is in a tense battle for the Republican presidential nomination, grew up in the Detroit area. His father, George, was a popular Michigan governor.
But George Romney left office 43 years ago. And Mitt Romney made his political and business reputation in Massachusetts, rescued the Olympics in Salt Lake City and has homes in New Hampshire, California and elsewhere.
