Jeff Sakwa, Co-Chair candidate for Ronna Romney-McDaniel, recently spoke out about grassroots issues, fundraising, and more. Sakwa says he knows he made the right choice getting on board the Romney-McDaniel ticket. 

Sakwa also stressed the importance of reaching out to women, youth, and minorities.

Sakwa took to Facebook, writing:

"Dear Delegates,

I am literally overjoyed at the prospects of what MIGOP can do WITH the GRASSROOTS in future elections!

After having been asked by other candidates to be their co-chair I know I made the RIGHT decision to run with Ronna Romney McDaniel. I have seen firsthand how she makes decisions after listening to everyone. Her enthusiasm is contagious, work ethic unparalleled, and most of all the compassion of working WITH others to unite for the fight is all there.

Many people think and live with conspiracy theories. MIGOP will be run through grassroots right up to the top of GOP. Our message MUST get out to youth, women and more minorities and NOBODY will do a better job.

Money, yes money is integral to running the party. Ronna and I are the only ones on record who have answered the question by us making the phone calls, and not hiring some unknown consultant who says he can raise more. These donors are built on relationships and money will be taken with NO strings attached. WE HEAR YOU and WE WILL LISTEN.

I have been successful in business and in life by getting along with others by listening. I have raised millions and worked with multimillion dollar real estate deals successfully even in the worst of times by not spending more than I make and save for the future, a lesson BIG GOVERNMENT needs to learn. Here is what you will get.

1. A state party that will support and collaborate with local county, district and grassroots leaders to engage our base, share our platform message, grow our party and turn out our vote in 2016.

2. A state party that will raise the funds necessary to operate daily functions and provide financial support to local parties and candidates.

3. A state party dedicated to "all of us" that is fair, consistent, appreciative and open. We can only win through addition."
