To The Point: Sen. Stabenow, MI GOP chair


GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — The Republicans and Democrats have had their conventions, now the campaigns are getting into that home stretch from Labor Day right to Election Day.

How are Democrats and Republicans feeling as they head into the final stage of the race?

Michigan Republican Party Chair Ronna Romney McDaniel says Republican are united behind presidential candidate Donald Trump after their convention in Cleveland.

“The convention was a success. We came out united behind our nominee. We went down as a Michigan delegations with 25 Trump, 17 Kasich and 17 Cruz delegates. For the most part, and I think everybody came around for Trump in the end, so that’s good. We united our base, we’re ready to turn to November and win the White House,” she said.

Sen. Debbie Stabenow thinks Democrats hit a home run with their convention in Philadelphia as well.

“You know I’ve been to a lot of conventions, Rick, and I have to say that I’ve never seen one better both in terms of the way it was put together, the breadth and depth of America that was represented there.

“The fact that we started out the beginning of the week with people still passionate about Bernie Sanders as well as Hillary Clinton. The way people were given the opportunity to express that and were respected,” Stabenow told “To The Point.”
