Before I say anything else I want to give big ups to the staff at the Michigan Republican Party. Preparation for a convention like this takes, literally, thousands of total man hours and when the event actually starts many of them will work 48 hours straight. No breaks. No sleep.
These guys don't get enough credit, mostly because they make it look so easy. And while we're at it, a big thanks to Saul Anuzis who today wrapped up his tenure as Chairman of the Michigan Republican Party.
Today's activities started with a half dozen different breakfast events at the Radisson and the Lansing Center. SoS candidates Anne Norlander and Michelle McManus played the role of host while Gubernatorial candidate and current AG Mike Cox spent time hanging out with Oakland County Republicans at their own giant breakfast.
The biggest theme, though, at breakfasts and the general session... the special election in the 19th Senate District. Mark Schauer's record of voting for job-killing tax hikes and putting partisan, far-left political interests ahead of his constituents would have made him vulnerable if he HADN'T broken his promise and left the District for DC.
Unfortunately for both 19th District moms and dads and the Democratic candidates themselves, Mike Simpson and Marty Griffin have voting records exactly like Schauer's. This is a pick-up opportunity, folks. A GOP pick-up opportunity that is going to draw huge national attention. In Michigan.
