Michigan’s Republican leaders are moving on from this week’s national convention with issues to address.
State Party Chairwoman Ronna Romney-McDaniel says support is coalescing around Republican nominee Donald Trump. But she says the refusal of some of Trump’s former rivals to endorse him is a problem.
“Bush, Kasich and Cruz, those are the ones that are not coming around. I understand it was a tough primary. But if they don’t lead, it hurts our party,” says Romney-McDaniel. “Hopefully they’ll grow up soon.”
Romney-McDaniel does not expect the divisions at the national level will hurt Michigan Republicans down the ballot running in local races in November.
