GOP at Mackinaw Conference This Weekend
(wgvu) - LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Republican activists will kick off a
two-day conference on Mackinac (MACK-eh-naw) Island tomorrow
featuring speeches by eight of the nine GOP presidential
candidates, a book-signing by Newt Gingrich and strategy sessions
for 2008.
Only Colorado Representative Tom Tancredo is expected to skip
the conference.
The biennial Mackinac Republican Leadership Conference will give
the presidential candidates a chance to increase their support in a
state that will be one of the earliest to weigh in with a January
15 primary.
It also could offer some hints on who's thinking of taking on
Democratic Senator Carl Levin next year and who might be running
for governor and other top seats in 2010.
Candidates Mitt Romney and Ron Paul were to arrive in the state
today for fundraising events in southeast Michigan.
