MACKINAC ISLAND, Mich. (WOOD) — Republicans gathered on Mackinac Island this weekend for their biennial leadership conference, and “To The Point.” was there to question Michigan leaders about what’s on their agenda.

Above on this Sept. 24, 2017 episode of “To The Point,” broadcast live from Mackinac Island, hear from Gov. Rick Snyder as he discusses programs to train more skilled workers, no-fault automotive insurance reform, the prevailing wage and the economy.

Then, Republican National Committee Chair Ronna Romney McDaniel, formerly the leader of the Michigan Republican Party, talks about transitioning into Washington, what she’s doing at the national level and the 2018 midterm election.
