I am a lifelong Republican who, like many, has witnessed different trends and focuses within the party. I truly believe that upholding the Constitution should be at the forefront of all those in office. Although being labeled a Republican or a Conservative are two labels that I’m proud to be called, I also feel my actions, my plan for Michigan, and my ability to unite and work together will supersede political labels. I know Michigan has big problems to confront and work through. I also recognize the Republican Party must stay together in order to play its role in Michigan’s recovery. I want to focus my camping on the people of Michigan and the recovery and not spend too much energy and time defining what type of Republican I am.
