GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — The Michigan Republican Party has a new chairman: Ronna Romney McDaniel has taken over the leadership role.
She stopped by “To The Point” to talk about what Republicans have to do to win Michigan in the presidential election for the first time since 1988.
“Certainly, you have to build an organization, get our grass roots ready and be ready to plug into who ever that nominee is,” she said. “And then we need to tell our story: You know, what we’ve done in Michigan under the Snyder administration and with the House and with the Senate to turn our state around and to bring 300,000 more jobs back to Michigan.”
She went on to say that the timing may be on Republicans’ side.
“When a party has had the White House for eight years, it’s a good time to switch. We’ve traditionally switched parties at that time, so it’s a good time to tell our story with Michigan,” she said.
Above, Ronna Romney McDaniel discusses what she hopes to achieve in her new role as chairman of the Michigan GOP in this March 8, 2015 episode of “To The Point.”
