Michigan, Arizona vote Tuesday: Here's a bit of a snapshot of what's going the day before the election....

*Mitt Romney's camp is in good shape in Arizona, improving in Michigan. If Romney loses Michigan, his quest for the nomination is threatened. Boston Globe Michigan over-view story on what is at stake in Michigan for Romney is HERE.

*The Democratic National Committee continues hammering Romney for his call to let the auto industry go into a
structured bankruptcy rather than take the Obama approach of a bail-out. A new web video is titled " "Let Detroit Go
Bankrupt" and includes people on the street interviews with Michigan voters
. DNC Vice Chair and Mayor of Minneapolis R.T. Rybak is in Michigan today for counter-programming.

*Days after a GOP debate in Mesa, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer endorsed Romney on Sunday. Romney continues to get the establishment endorsement--as chief rival Rick Santorum plays to the base not impressed by the GOP establishment pick.

*Newt Gingrich is in Tennessee on Monday and Tuesday.
