My Blog Post: MI GOP Policy Committee Votes for a Closed Primary
After several months of discussions between state committee members, county chairs and party activists…the State Committee's Policy Committee unanimously passed a resolution recommending a closed primary to the full State Committee.

    • Deborah DeBacker It wont be any different than an open primary. The Dems have no one to vote for so they will take a Republican ballot.

    • R. George Dunn Now we need the Michigan Governor primary to be sent to Convention if less then 50% majority popular vote. Don't forget. Interesting thought. If a presidential candidate does not get 50% of the vote in a Congressional District, how about going to County caucus to declare winner, each being their own entity.

    • Deborah DeBacker I remember before 2000, there were no winner take all. Delegates were apportioned according to the percentage of votes. National conventions meant something and all candidates came here.

    • R. George Dunn To each District their own, or to each County Caucus their own?

    • R. George Dunn Maybe we can do the popular vote in Primary by a compromise of~ In all primary vote, Party member must be member as long as office voting for., w/ exception of the first 6 years for equity.

    • R. George Dunn Not today, today we have new Media. No more play book, al new, called truth. Brainstorming is happenning in cyber, freely. It is only a recommendation the Full Committee. We still can fine tune it. Cronnyism is not an excuse any more...

      If everyone knew all there is to know, they would not do half the things they do, including myself, therefore I must foregive them, including myself.
