Michigan Trump Republicans

We would like to Thank everyone who came out to the Michigan Trump Republican Event. We had 110+ at the Yoberosa for a event that had speakers such as Dave Agema and Lena Epstein. We had a good night of food and conversation that involved supporting our President and encouraging each other to prepare for the upcoming elections.

Thanks to everyone who made the Event such a success.

Now is the Time
For All Good People

Welcome to the Newaygo County Republican Committee in the Great State of Michigan.

We spell Voter with a capital "V". We are a Party of all people: First time Voters, 18-30 year old Voters including Millennial Voters, middle aged Voters, senior citizen Voters, and very senior citizen Voters.

We invite you to learn more about us and our involvement at local, county and state levels. We like balanced budgets, smaller government, local control, opportunity for all, defending the Constitution, freedom, elephants, red white & blue, apple pie and a republic form of government. As it was once said, "all politics are local". We believe that. Grassroots! That IS us.

Over many decades, the Newaygo County Republican Committee has distinguished itself statewide, as a premier grassroots political organization...representative government at its best. We are the ultimate Growth and Opportunity Party. If you like what we like and want the enjoyable experience of a lifetime, including making a difference in the 2014 Mid-Term Elections, the 2016 National Elections, and local elections, get involved with us. We look forward to seeing you.

MI Republican Talking Points



In 2010, Michigan’s “Lost Decade” ended when Republicans took back the Governor’s office and took full control of the State Legislature. Over the past 8 years, Michigan has been the “Comeback State” leading our nation’s economic recovery.

· Michigan home values have reached an all-time high. Since 2010, the value of Michigan homes has risen 46.5%. This increase is 16% above the national average. (Zillow)

· Adjusted for inflation, median household income in Michigan rose 12% from 2010 to 2016. This increase is 3.2% higher than the national average. (Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis)

· Unemployment in Michigan fell from 11.4% in November 2010 to 4.6% in November 2017 – a 60% decrease. This decrease is 2% better than the national average. In 2017, Michigan’s unemployment rate hit the lowest level in 17 years. (Bureau of Labor Statistics)

· Michigan’s population grew by an estimated 78,182 people from 2010 to 2017. That increase is more than the number of people who live in the City of Kalamazoo and takes Michigan’s population up to 9,962,311 residents. This reverses the population losses the state suffered under Democrat control during the Lost Decade when the state lost 54,804 residents and we were number one for one-way moves out of state. (US Census Bureau)

· Michigan has reversed the “brain drain” flow. During the Lost Decade, college graduates were leaving the state in droves. Under Republican leadership, Michigan led the Midwest in net-bound inward migration of people with bachelor’s degrees from 2013-2015, and by 2017 more college graduates were staying in state than leaving. (US Census Bureau and Detroit Chamber of Commerce)

· In 2014, Republicans at the State Capitol led an unprecedented municipal restructuring for the City of Detroit. Since then, with the cooperation of State and local leaders and the Michigan business community, Detroit has made an amazing economic comeback. Adjusted for inflation, Detroit’s Gross City Product (GCP) rose 11.3% from 2010 to 2016. In 2016, Detroit GCP was at its highest level in 16 years. (Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago)
