Renowned political operative Chuck Yob, the former RNC Committeeman for Michigan, beat out popular Congressman Justin Amash for a spot on the prestigious Credentials Committee for the Republican National Convention in Cleveland during last weekend's MIGOP Convention in Lansing.

Yob is an at-large Kasich delegate, Amash an at-large Cruz delegate.

According to The Detroit News:

"Cruz’s campaign was especially irked because former Republican National Committeeman Chuck Yob, a Kasich delegate, was elected to the convention Credentials Committee over Congressman Justin Amash, an at-large Cruz delegate."

The win was the result of his son, political consultant John Yob, working hard behind the scenes to assure Chuck Yob's big win over Amash.

Yob, recently in the spotlight for his book on what things in Cleveland may look like, is currently in the midst of some heated convention drama of his own.

After successfully winning a delegate position in his new home, the US Virgin Islands, controversy and establishment game- playing ensued, with status quo forces in the USVI unsuccessfully attempting to remove Yob as a delegate.

Stay tuned...
