MACKINAC ISLAND (WKZO) -- The three-day Mackinac Republican Leadership Conference is underway with a lineup of high profile leaders and activists. Governor Rick Snyder, Lieutenant Governor Brian Calley and Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus will be featured speakers Friday.
Tea Party activists plan to be on hand to show their disapproval of what they believe are more liberal policies by the Republicans. At the top of the list is Governor Snyder's recent signing of the Medicaid expansion bill that will add over 400-thousand residents to the federal health plan.
Other top Republicans scheduled to appear this weekend include Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal and Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky.
