Hundreds of Republicans gathered at Mackinac Island in advance of the 2022 midterm elections.

In Northern Michigan, two GOP events, one on Mackinac Island, and one in Antrim County cast light on a party divided. Many national figures joined with mainstream elected officials at the Mackinac Republican Leadership Conference. Not too far away, Garrett Soldano, a candidate for governor held his own rally.

What is the Republican Party in Michigan in the post-Trump era? And can the disparate factions of the Party align on a single message ahead of the midterm elections?
