GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — The Michigan presidential primary is history, but what did it teach us?
Michigan Republican Party Chair Ronna Romney McDaniel says that no matter who wins the nomination, it is her job to elect a Republican to the White House and honor the wishes of voters.
“We have got to reach out to them. We have got to share what we are doing as a party to put our convention together, to work towards the election, to build our ground game. So we have got to be interfacing with them on a regular basis and we are certainly going to be doing that, and I have to advocate for the voters,” McDaniel said.Inside woodtv.com: Sanders, Trump win MI presidential primaries | 2016 MI primary sets voter turnout record | Some polling places run of ballots
“I have to say to them, ‘I’m going to follow your will,'” she continued. “The voters get to decide who the nominee is and I’m going to be an advocate for their voice as chair of the Republican Party and make sure that they know that I’m going to work hard to bring everybody together and unite around our nominee so we can win the White House.”
