Talk about a great football game coming up NEXT Saturday in Ann Arbor!
By this time in 2008, the McCain for President campaign had given up on Michigan voters and had pulled their campaign efforts out of our state. We lost congressional and state legislative seats. Michigan Republicans fought to the end…never giving up.
Today, we are on the verge of winning back those congressional seats and MORE. We are working to win BACK the Governor's seat. Republicans are looking to increase their majority in the State Senate and knocking on the door of taking back a House Republican Majority.
We have key Supreme Court, Attorney General, Secretary of State and other statewide campaigns that are poised to be part of our own "revolution"!
Times have changed…America has woken up…and Michigan Republicans are there. We will "earn" a second chance and have a responsibility to lead with principle and vision.
Washington and the Democrats have surged too far to the left. Pushing radical programs that are out of touch with American voters, Obama and the Democrats are in trouble. Democrats are spending too much; borrowing too much; and leaving our children and grandchildren with unsustainable deficits to pay off.
If you're mad as hell…and don't want to take it anymore…vote for change!
Have you Voted by Absentee Ballot – I Have!
I expect to be out of my hometown area campaigning on behalf of Republican candidates around the state, so I have already "banked" my vote on behalf of Republican candidates. You can to…and should. Cast your vote early so you have the option of helping us where we need you most. Don't take any chances, "bank" your vote early…change is on the way!
But it's NOT OVER! Are Democrats Waking Up
"Most of the experts who analyzed the NBC/WSJ numbers concluded that the results represent no big change in the overall political climate, but that Democrats could be getting more engaged. But one poll isn't a trend, and other high-quality surveys that carefully screen for likely voters should be examined for signs that Democrats really are becoming energized."
"Priceless" ad about Virg Bernero's Record
The facts and your public record…WITHOUT distortion can be a scary thing. PLEASE SHARE!
A New Website on Democrat Dave Leyton's record A Record of Failure – Now he wants a Promotion?
With David Leyton's record as Genesee County's Prosecutor – running for Attorney General to be the top law enforcement officer in the State seems to be an outrage. See the heartbreaking stories about his failures…justice denied.
Five Democrats Congressional Seats in Play!
This is one of the most competitive environments I have ever seen in both Michigan and our country. For the first time I can remember, we actually have FIVE Congressional seats held by Democrats that Republicans have a chance to pick up. PLEASE, do you part to help our candidates in you area!
Dr. Dan Benishek (Bart Stupak's open seat)
John Kupiec (Dale Kildee – D)
Tim Walberg (Mark Schauer – D)
Rocky Rackowski (Gary Peters – D)
Dr. Rob Steele (John Dingell – D)
There is a reason Democrats fear a "meltdown" in the Midwest…and Michigan Republicans can be a part of it! Everything and Anything you can do…helps!
Democrats fear Midwestern meltdown
"There's two major factors. One is that there are a lot of swing voters, as well as a lot of Reagan Democrat voters, in the Midwest, and therefore I think the national mood hits harder," said Saul Anuzis, the former Michigan Republican Party chairman. "And secondly you're talking about record unemployment."
http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0910/42713.html Democrat's Attack – Are We Ready
"Negative advertisements have hit the airwaves early as Democratic candidates fight to preserve party's congressional majority…Democratic candidates across the country are opening a fierce offensive of negative advertisements against Republicans, using lawsuits, tax filings, reports from the Better Business Bureau and even divorce proceedings to try to discredit their opponents and save their congressional majority."
New Michigan Republican Party State Chairman
As ALL our efforts are focused on this fall's election coming up November 2nd, there is more and more talk about who will be the NEXT Chairman of our party. The names that I have heard most often mentioned are: Senate Majority Leader Mike Bishop, MRP Vice Chair Torion Bridges, MRP Vice Chair Scott Greenlee, Former MRP Vice Chair Stan Grot, Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land, MRP Finance Chair Bob Schostak and MRP Vice Chair Norm Shinkle. Some great options, just an FYI.

ObamaCare & the Costs of the Welfare State
"Obamacare inclines America in the long run to some combination of the following: the sullen acceptance of government-distributed scarcity, envy of people who have more than their fair share of health care, and growing alienation from a system that tries to play God but does so without wisdom, justice, or mercy. These toxic sentiments will be familiar to anyone who has lived under socialism, for they are its concomitants. When added to the caustic effects of dependency on government, they amount to a prescription for an American character increasingly unfit for self-government.
As Ronald Reagan once warned, you can't socialize the doctors without also socializing the patients."
Social Media: The New Battleground for Politics - GOP Leading the Way!
"It's arguable that both parties are executing well on their strategies. Of the two, the Republican party's efforts — focusing on the core through crowdsourcing and listening efforts, and then empowering the core to push out on a national and local level — are most likely to create groundswells of activity across the web. It's a populist approach that can make local bloggers into national party voices, and creates encouragement across the entire country for local races."

McDowell Gets N.R.A. Endorsement
Rep. Gary McDowell of Rudyard got a big lift Monday in the hotly competitive race for the 1st U.S. House District when the National Rifle Association enthusiastically endorsed his campaign, making Mr. McDowell one of just three Democrats endorsed by the NRA in open seats for Congress this year.
"The NRA-PVF is endorsing Gary McDowell because he is a proven defender of the Second Amendment freedoms of law-abiding gun owners, hunters and sportsmen in Michigan," said Chris Cox, chair of the NRA Political Victory Fund. "On November 2, I urge those in Michigan's 1st District to vote Gary McDowell for Congress."
Mr. McDowell is up against Republican physician Dan Benishek of Crystal Falls in one of the most competitive U.S. House races in the nation this year as the two vie to replace retiring U.S. Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Menominee).
The NRA cited Mr. McDowell's votes for legislation removing barriers to youth hunting, prohibiting gun confiscation during states of emergency, repealing unnecessary post-purchase inspections of hand guns and restoring the rights of law-abiding citizens to defend their property. The NRA also noted that Mr. McDowell opposes re-enacting the Clinton-era gun and magazine ban, supports national right-to-carry reciprocity and believes hunters should have access to federal lands for hunting, fishing, trapping and recreational shooting.
"It is an honor to have the continued support of the NRA," Mr. McDowell said in a statement. "As a lifelong sportsman, I have a deep respect and appreciation for hunting as a part of our way of life in northern Michigan. I will continue to fight to protect every citizen's right to keep and bear arms as guaranteed by the Second Amendment."
