This Saturday, the Michigan Republican Party (MIGOP) will hold its State Convention in a 100% virtual format to elect delegates, alternates to this August’s Republican National Convention, as well as RNC Committee. The convention, which had been originally scheduled for April, was moved to a virtual format to protect the health and safety of delegates, alternates, staff and grassroots activists.
The digital event will feature Republican leaders from across the nation, joining the livestream to highlight Michigan’s importance in 2020. This year’s lineup will include RNC Chairwoman and former MIGOP Chair Ronna McDaniel, as well as combat veteran, Detroit businessman and U.S. Senate Candidate John James. Also joining the virtual event will be South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem, former RNC Chairman and White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, Speaker Lee Chatfield and Senate Majority Leader Shirkey. Plus, we’ll have a very special guest from the President’s reelection Campaign!
The results of the convention will be posted via MIGOP social media pages, sent via release, and posted to the convention website.
“I look forward to joining all of our delegates and party leaders online to celebrate our party of growth, opportunity, prosperity – and the American Dream,” said Laura Cox, Michigan Republican Party Chairman. “Our seamless transition to a virtual convention proves the MIGOP has the resources and manpower to win for President Trump and Republicans this November. While this may not be the format, we all had envisioned, it won’t stop the enthusiasm Michiganders have for our party and our President.”
