(MPRN-Grand Rapids) Michigan Republicans were in Grand Rapids this past weekend to finalize their slate on the November ballot and fire up for the final weeks of the election season.


(MPRN-Mackinac Island) Many Michigan Republicans spent the weekend on Mackinac Island, where they enjoyed fine dining and cocktail receptions, listened to the campaign pitches of five presidential candidates, and plotted the future of their party. And it was done mostly without the rancor that’s marked other Republican gatherings in recent years. 

The state committee of the Michigan Republican Party elected Kathy Berden as the party's new national committeewoman at a meeting in northern Michigan on Saturday, a party spokeswoman confirmed. Berden, of Snover in Sanilac County, needed two ballots to defeat Mary Whiteford of South Haven in Allegan County, because no one won a majority on the first ballot. (Detroit Free Press)
