GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) – Members of the Republican Party are looking to capitalize on the momentum of a successful midterm election.
GOP leadership gathered Saturday morning at the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel in downtown Grand Rapids for their monthly committee meetings.
Michigan Chairman Bobby Schostak credits the Republican ground game during the election either calling or knocking on the doors of nearly a million homes.
Schostak says Republicans need the same effort before the presidential election in 2016.
“We will have a good vibrant primary here in Michigan which looks to be on the March 15th of 2016. And we’ll have our whole get out the vote effort to communicate why Republican values need to take over the White House and I suspect that this will be our year,” said Schostak.
During the midterm elections, Republicans held on to the Governor’s seat and increased their control of both the state House and Senate.
