Next Weekend: Selfies for Trump (and other fun stuff!)


Also … a Trump 2020 rally at the Petoskey “pit” on Saturday, 10/24 from noon to 2 p.m.

Bold & Fun Trump Headquarters in Petoskey Center

This is HUGE! There is a new Trump headquarters in Emmet County (to obtain free yard signs for the President and other candidates!) in Petoskey on E. Mitchell Street … in the building that used to house the Family Video store. It is a primo location, as it’s right across the street from “the hole.” The large, marquee signs are especially eye-catching.

Thanks to Mr. Bob Berg for the use of the building, and to Mr. Herb Friske (pictured below with Tara and Penny) and his team for setting it all up.


Enjoying An Autumn Afternoon with “Uncle Frank”

The ECRP’sFall Funraiser, held at Uncle Frank’s Apple Town in Brutus, was festive and pleasant.

Attendees went on a hayride, drank fresh-pressed cider, hobnobbed in the barn, and took in the pumpkins and Halloween decorations.

All who attended and helped the Emmet County GOP raise funds for a worthy cause are much appreciated! #MAGA #TRUMP2020

The 3T’s: Tunnel of Trees for Trump

Laura Cox Visits Emmet County

MI GOP Chair Laura Cox swung by northern Michigan, yesterday. The ECRP held a meet and greet for her and her staff at the Northern Lights Recreation’s banquet room. After being introduced by Vice-Chair Lou Zako, Chair Cox, who was a former ICE agent, gave a rousing speech aimed at encouraging GOP voters. Of her visit, Chair Cox tweeted: “Thank you Harbor Springs for you incredible enthusiasm! I was lucky to speak with so many great activists and candidates this afternoon, and I know President Donald Trump will win in November with their relentless support!”

Petoskey Hole: Big Statement, Big Signs

Like a Patriotic Block Party

This past Friday, on a beautiful summer early evening, the Emmet County Republican Party held a grand opening/open house of the County’s local campaign headquarters.

We had a steady turnout of enthusiastic Republicans in attendance including local elected officials, candidates, and our own MI-01 Congressman – Gen. Jack Bergman.

Please stop by the office to say “MAGA” or to grab a yard sign. Volunteer, too! Information at the right. 




Trump Boat Parade On Lake Charlevoix

The Charlevoix County GOP hosted a visually-stunning event in support of Trump 2020, as well as in support of state-wide and local candidates.

Photos from the air horn start, of the boat parade (60+ boats!), at the Boyne City Municipal Marina. Emmet County Republican Party supporters were on hand to cheer on the red, white, and blue flotilla.


GOP Candidates’ Forum: 107th District Race

Last night the ECRP hosted a well-received GOP candidates’ forum for the ladies and gentlemen who are running for Speaker of the House/Rep. Lee Chatfield’s seat and are eager to move, part-time, to Lansing. to represent a geographically-large, bodacious region. Six of the seven candidates for the 107th District MI House of Representatives race attended – Tana Baldwin, John Damoose, Sue Fisher, Terry Lamb, Damon Lieurance, and Kathy Twardy. (David Laughbaum did not make it.) This was the first time these candidates were in the same room at the same time together. An ECRP executive board sub-committee prepared ten questions, and Izzy Lyman acted as the evening’s emcee. The exchange was cordial, civil, informative, and interesting. Thank you to the candidates who participated (three drove from the UP!), as well as to their families who came to support them, as well as to the audience who was attentive and engaged. We wish everyone the best on August 4, 2020!
