Announcements:

Battle Cry Michigan! Tired of feeling like the Ugly Stepchild of the Republican Party? We work hard to elect Republicans who promise limited government BUT after they’re elected, they instantly abandon their campaign promises…BattleCry Michigan will take place January 29 and 30th in Battle Creek at the FireKeepers casino. We are taking our party back and going back to our platform, back to our Principles and Constitutional values, back to a Genuine Republican Party that we can be proud of again, but we need you there.
