10th Congressional District Republican Party Chairman Stan Grot hosted the group's annual fundraising dinner recently, and Grot brought RNC Chair Ronna Romney McDaniel back to Michigan to keynote the event.
Ronna and Michigan House Speaker Tom Leonard were greeted with big league applause during their speeches.
Ronna talked about what it has been like to transition from Michigan to DC, work with the Trump family, and also gave an update on the 2018 election.
Ronna emphasized the importance of delivering President Trump another two years with a Republican Congress, with a special focus on Michigan Senator Debbie Stabenow.
"2018 can be the year we finally retire Debbie Stabenow," Ronna said.
She also committed to making sure the Republican Senate nominee in Michigan will have the resources they need from the RNC to make that happen.
House Speaker Tom Leonard also spoke, giving an update on various pieces of legislation making their way through Lansing.
Leonard says the constitutional-carry legislation ending the need for licenses to conceal a gun is "228 years overdue."
Leonard also talked about his decision to put up an income tax vote when he knew it would probably fail. He says he has no regrets about fighting for less taxes and more limited government.
Other speakers included Rep. Paul Mitchell, Linda Lee Tarver of the Republican Women's Federation of Michigan, and former 1st District Vice Chair Crystal Grantham.
