CNN projects Mitt Romney wins Michigan GOP primary

 (CNN) - Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney will win Tuesday's Republican primary in his native Michigan, CNN projects.

The projection is based on precincts reporting results, exit polls and other statistical models - including the number of votes outstanding in areas where Romney is expected to do well.

CNN's Shirley Zilberstein reports from Romney's election night celebration in Southfield, Michigan that the campaign played "Signed, Sealed, Delivered" as the race was called for the former Massachusetts governor when polls closed at 9 p.m. ET.

    Mitt Romney is the biggest phony to come down the political pike since, well, John Edwards. His "Mittness" reminds me of somebody stuck in a 1950's time warp. To hear Rush and Hannity prop him up and bash McCain shows just how hypocritical and irrelevant those two have become.

    Look, John MCain is the ONLY Republican who can beat the Democrats in November, and you don't have to suspend disbelief to know that.

    As a Michigan resident, I am so angry that we were disenfranchised by both major parties in the primaries. What is preventing us from having truly fair and reasonable primaries - all on the same day nationwide? It would more fairly reflect the thoughts of the voters, stop the bloated impact of the early-voting states, and cut down this ridiculous and expensive long run of pre-election jockeying.
