    BREAKING - Dave Agema to Challenge Anuzis!

    Folks, GREAT NEWS today for those who believe in principled GOP leadership!

    Republican Representative Dave Agema, has decided to run for Republican National Committeeman.

    Agema, a long time Republican, is one of a number of principled Tea Party conservatives in the house. Dave currently represents the 74th state house district.  Unfortunately, he is term limited out this election cycle, and has decided to bring true conservative ideals to the committeeman position.

    He offers a serious alternative to the crony Republican "Dele-Gate" style politics found with the other guy.  If we wish to overcome the challenges ahead in the GOP, we need to have trustworthy folks like Dave giving us a voice in the process.

    We encourage Tea Party Republican delegates to make sure they are involved in the upcoming conventions, and to make sure they are there to see a worthy Republican through to this important 'super delegate' position.

    More information on how you can help will be provided soon!

    The Dele-Gate thing was bad.

    But Saul's paid lobbying for the Democrat-dream National Popular Vote is completely inexcusable and cause for removal.

    A fraudulent vote in a Democrat-run state that turns a blind eye at fraud, cancels out my vote with NPV.  that's a serious voting rights issue and one that gives Agema my vote hands down.

    I think the National GOP Committee voted it down by 95+% and the State GOP Committee voted it down by about the same margin.

    (Not to mention that Dave Agema is a great conservative.)

    Dear Fellow Conservative Republican -

    I am writing you today to ask for your support for my campaign for Republican National Committeeman from Michigan.

    The purpose of Michigan's Republican National Committeeman is to represent the grassroots base of the Michigan Republican Party on the Republican National Committee and to help elect Republicans across the state.  

    Please allow me to give you some of my background.  I was first elected 6 years ago as a citizen who had served our country as a fighter pilot and then as a pilot with American Airlines.  I was consistently ranked as one of the most conservative legislators in the state, and have taken a lead on several conservative issues.  I believe in term limits and that bringing more conservative citizen legislators into the political process would be good for our party, our state, and our country.

    My qualifications are these:

    • Retired military officer (LTCOL, USAF) and fighter pilot
    • Retired airline pilot (Senior Captain, American Airlines)
    • MBA from Central Michigan University, BA from Calvin College
    • Consistently ranked as one of the most conservative state legislators in Michigan during my tenure as a state representative
    • Never once supported a tax increase of any kind

    My tenure as a state legislator is almost done, and now I'm looking to become active in recruiting other constitutional conservatives to run for office, and to grow the Michigan Republican Party with more conservative leaders and activists.  By definition, the Republican Party is the "rule of law" party, and I think that we are best served by reaching out to those groups and grassroots activists who seek to protect, defend, and restore our country to the intent and original meaning of our Charters of Freedom. I'm running for this position at the May 19th MIGOP State Convention and I'd like your support for my campaign.  I make five pledges to you:

    1. Work hard for the election of more constitutional conservatives at all levels. I will work hard to elect good conservatives like Representative Tom McMillin, Representative Mike Shirkey, and others who put Constitutional Conservatism first.

    2. Side with more conservative members of the Republican National Committee.  There are often battles within the RNC on conservative issues such as immigration.  I will vote 100% conservative and side with conservatives even if we are in the minority, like I have done in the House of Representatives.  Conservatism comes before pressure from party leaders.

    3. Will not work as a paid political consultant while in a party office.  I think it is inappropriate for party officials to be consulting or lobbying on political issues.  I saw enough of that in Lansing and with my experience with National Popular Vote.

    4. I will oppose National Popular Vote with every bone in my body. I think Saul Anuzis is a nice guy.  I get along with him well.  He came to me and asked me to support National Popular Vote.  I assumed that if such a well-known party leader was asking me to support something with the party apparatus, it was something that I should look into.  So I traveled with him to Washington DC, studied the issue, and initially was persuaded.  I learned that he was a paid consultant for National Popular Vote and there might have been more than meets the eye.  Therefore, I found it necessary to study the issue some more and quickly realized that National Popular Vote was not the right direction for our state nor our country.  I strongly oppose National Popular Vote.

    5. The Michigan Dele-Gate fiasco was wrong.  I agreed with former Attorney General Mike Cox that what was done to Rick Santorum was wrong and was not helpful to anyone.

    Should I be elected as Michigan's Republican National Committeeman, I will seek to help good Constitutional Conservatives get elected at all levels.  I will be available to tea party leadership and other grassroots activists at any time, and will seek to encourage their continued efforts to restore the Grand Old Party to its liberty-minded, rule of law foundation.

    However, in order to do this, I will need your support.  Please keep in mind that you do not need to be a Precinct Delegate to be a State Convention Delegate.  You will need to attend the County Convention on May 3rd and the State Convention on May 18th and 19th.  Please contact me for more information about running for State Convention Delegate.

    I hope you agree with me that it is time for new leadership for Michigan on the Republican National Committee and will support my campaign to elect a Constitutional Conservative.

    I ask to have your personal endorsement of my campaign, and to urge other conservatives to attend their county and state conventions.  Please respond by e-mail at: agemaforrnc@gmail.com.

    Sincerely and Respectfully,

    Representative Dave Agema
