MACKINAC ISLAND (WKZO) -- The Mackinac Republican Leadership Conference is going on this weekend on Mackinac Island, and one attendee from the Kalamazoo area is Gene Clem, with the Southwest Michigan Tea Party Patriots. He tells us the event is a big shindig for the GOP's movers and shakers.
Clem was looking forward to hearing from Senator Rand Paul, and perhaps learning more about possible Tea Party candidates to oppose Governor Rick Snyder when he seeks reelection. He said the Tea Party does have a presence at this year's conference.
The Michigan Republican Leadership Conference runs through Sunday.
