This weekend, the Michigan chapter of the Republican Liberty Caucus held its annual Convention in the Detroit suburbs. Former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson and State Representative Justin Amash were the featured speakers.
Amash is running for U.S. Congress in District 3, a Republican seat recently vacated by Vern Ehlers. The Michigan RLC will be issuing its endorsements in the coming months.
This particular event was the best attended event in the Michigan RLC’s recent memory, with around 50 supporters. The chapter also elected new officers, including Mike Hewitt, Chair; Rob Johnson, Vice-Chair; Ty Whitney, Secretary; Alice Benbow, Treasurer; and several At-Large Board members.
Justin Amash is the past Chair of the Republican Liberty Caucus of Kent County. His successor to that post, Dr. Eric Larson, will be running for State Representative in the seat Amash is vacating.
