WXYZ (ABC News, Detroit): Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney candidate for Detroit’s emergency financial manager?
-By: Jeff Vaughn
March 4, 2013- Since Governor Snyder proclaimed Detroit is in a financial emergency Friday, only one name has surfaced as a possible emergency financial manager.
Could a man that last ran for president be Detroit's EFM?
"I do have a top candidate and we do have additional people that could serve that role," said Governor Snyder. "The top candidate's outstanding," he continued about the mystery person.
At least two political commentators speculate former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney may be Detroit's EFM. Washington Post opinion writer Charles Lane suggested Romeny would be a good choice after turning around a number of businesses and citing Romney's Detroit roots and his availability.
