Less than a week before Tuesday’s crucial GOP presidential primary in Michigan, a new NBC News/Marist poll shows Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum locked in a statistical tie, while a separate survey shows Romney comfortably leading in Arizona, which holds its primary the same day.

It’s been 27 days since the last GOP debate but Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul face off at a debate hosted by CNN and the Republican Party of Arizona at the Mesa Arts Center tonight at 8pm ET.

President Obama will ask Congress to scrub the corporate tax code of dozens of loopholes to reduce the top rate to 28 percent, down from 35 percent, while giving preferences to manufacturers that would set their maximum effective rate at 25 percent, a senior administration official said on Tuesday.

Rick Santorum told a crowd of Arizona Republicans that he was “an outsider when he was inside” Washington, arguing he fought corruption and wasteful spending during his 16 years in Congress.

Mitt Romney said Tuesday that cutting spending slows growth in the economy — a rhetorical slip more akin to an argument a Democrat might make than a Republican.

    Another great podcast! It was great that Dr. Helen asked if he would ouspprt making a state’s concealed carry permit good in any other state. It caught him off guard unfortunately. I don’t see Republicans working hard on this issue, but they should be. Here in AZ, the R’s always say that they don’t want to federalize state gun laws as the consequences could become dire. But this is just an excuse since the Rs rush to federalize everything else (including voting for the 94 AW ban which both R’s Kolbe and Kyl voted for). It’s time for the R’s to walk the walk on this issue and get it done. It’s a simple issue of homeland security which should address violent crime and family safety every bit as much as terrorism. R’s seem only interested these days in big government solutions…Dr Steve in AZ
