Tag: State Chair
On November 19th, 2012, I received a call from a staffer on behalf of Michigan Republican Party Chairman Bobby Schostak, asking me for my endorsement for his reelection. At least three times during the phone conversation, I stated, "I want to see who else is going to run first, I will NOT make an endorsement for anyone until January. If I do decide to endorse Bobby, I will give you a call back in January." I still haven't called back.
On December 8th, 2012 while attending the Michigan Republican Party State Committee Meeting, I came across a pile of fliers. "Bobby Schostak for Chair - Overwhelming Grassroots Support!"
It was a list consisting of State Committee Members, District Chairs, County Chairs, Tea Party Leaders, and Grassroots Activists. Going through the list, my endorsement appeared, Oscoda County Chairman - Doug Davis.
I was immediately upset and offended that my statement of not endorsing ANYONE until January was not taken seriously, even after stating it THREE TIMES, especially being the newly elected Oscoda County Chair for the Michigan Republican Party!
To make matters worse, an email of the list was sent out on December 7th, 2012 to the entire state Republican Party, which I didn't receive until the day after the State Committee Meeting.
