FRANKENMUTH, MI (AP) - Mitt Romney is telling voters he'll win Michigan and is working to reassure small businesses that he'll help them as president.

Campaigning in Michigan on Tuesday, Romney held a round-table with community business owners and addressed a rally outside the sprawling Bavarian Lodge Inn in the resort town of Frankenmuth. He criticized President Barack Obama's energy policies and said they had hurt local businesses.

Romney steered clear of mentioning the federal bailouts that saved General Motors and Chrysler. He appeared with Republican Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder. Romney's wife, Ann, spoke to the crowd about her Michigan roots.

The likely Republican presidential nominee planned two more stops in Michigan on Tuesday. It's the final day of a six-state bus tour through the Rust Belt.
