Washtenaw county republican party delegates - who were duly elected at the county convention -attended the State convention at Cobo Hall this weekend. Washtenaw delegates convened with delegates from across the State for the purpose of electing a new "national" committee-man and committee-woman, in addition to electing delegates to various other positions.
Incumbent national committee-man Saul Anuzis was contested by challenger Dave Agema. Agema's lopsided victory implies that the people who comprise Michigan's Republican Party are re-asserting their rightful claim to conservative principles - like the Constitution of the United States of America upon which the Nation is (supposed to be) founded. The implications of the national committee-woman contest between the victorious State representative Holly Hughes and former secretary of state Terry Land was less apparent.
In his concession, Saul Anuzis wronglfully wrote that an "anti-establishment fever swept the convention". But Anuzis is wrong because the constituents' demand that party officials comply with and promote conservative principles does NOT imply annihilation. Rather, the collection of duly elected republican grass-roots delegates has created a Michigan political force that is reforming Michigan's Republican Party.
