Michigan GOP chairman expects Republican National Convention will end on time

Aug 27, 2012

The chairman of Michigan’s Republican Party says he does not believe Tropical Storm Isaac will hamper the work that needs to get done at this week's national convention in Florida.

National party leaders canceled most events for the first day of the Republican National convention because of the threat of  Isaac.   They hope to get back on schedule tomorrow.

National Republican leaders are not ruling out the need to add an extra day to the schedule.

But Bob Schostak says he doubts that will be necessary.   Schostak is the chair of Michigan’s Republican Party.

“Look, we’re here. We’ll do what we need to do,” says Schostak. 

Michigan delegates will have great seats, front and center on the convention floor.

But, because state Republicans moved up their primary in violation of party rules, Michigan will only have half the voting delegates it would normally have.
