Battleground Kent County Super Saturday!

Join us for a day of action with the Michigan Republican Party as we prepare for the 2022 election cycle with our Battleground Kent County program! We will be going door-to-door in precincts across Kent County, talking with voters about their stance on important issues that will be discussed during the next election cycle. We will be utilizing “Campaign Sidekick” for all voter contact in the 2022 cycle. Campaign Sidekick is a user-friendly mobile application that can be downloaded to an an iPhone, Android, or tablet. We will be meeting at Kent GOP Headquarters at 10am for complimentary coffee and donuts. From there, we will disperse into different parts of the county for the rest of the day and you can participate for as long as you would like!

For those of you who don't feel comfortable going door-to-door, you can also use Campaign Sidekick to make phone calls to voters. We will have our office open all day for you to make calls, with a staff person present, or you may do so from home. 

Joining us for the event will be State Representative Mark Huizenga, the Republican Party's nominee for the 28th State Senate district. That district will be having a special election on Tuesday, November 2nd, and we will also be talking with voters about why it is important for them to vote in that election!

If you would like to volunteer for this event, please RSVP on this page. After you RSVP our Political Director, Mike Sullivan, will create you an account with Campaign Sidekick and email you your login information and two short training videos. We also invite you to attend an in-person training session for Campaign Sidekick on Wednesday, August 18th.

34th Biennial Mackinac Republican Leadership Conference

As Chairman of the Michigan Republican Party, it is my honor and pleasure to announce the 34th Biennial Mackinac Republican Leadership Conference. We have already secured multiple national speakers, but our primary goal is discussing the future of our incredible state. If we want to rebuild Michigan, we must be all in. Our State has suffered incredibly difficulties under the heavy hand of bad government and policy decisions that have destroyed livelihoods. Our panels and leaders will discuss how to bring this State Back, support our Michigan businesses and ensure that we come roaring back from the disastrous year we've had. The 2021 Conference will be held September 24-26th at the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island. We will be announcing an incredible lineup of speakers, panels and events in the coming weeks. Be sure and register early to ensure your spot on the Island!

Ambassador Ron Weiser, Chairman of the Michigan Republican Party

Through May 4th, you can get the Early Bird rate of $100 for registration. Reservations at the Grand Hotel may be made beginning May 15. To register for the conference, please CLICK HERE. For additional information on the Mackinac Republican Leadership Conference, please CLICK HERE
